I Reject the Words (1991)


I Reject The Words - drawing by Harvey Dog 2020

I reject the words
of despair,
ennui
apathy,
words of abandonment,
words that smother
and drown
a searching soul

I reject the words
of death,
dejection
depression,
words that trick
and deceive,
words that reject
anarchy and action

I reject the words
that wrote
…this piece of poetry


Notes

  • I was reading a lot of poetry during this time period.
  • I’m still trying to reject those words. It’s not always easy!

Written: 1991
