Give Us Poets

Give us poets not afraid

to say unswervingly

the things we are most

afraid to hear.

 

Give us poets who avoid

the standard texts,

tired suggestions

of the great and the good.

 

Give us poets who write

in lines of passion

willing to bare

their genitals in church.

 

Give us poets who ignore

the culturally approved

whose images chase

a thin disguise.

 

Give us poets not afraid

to say unswervingly

the things we are most

afraid to hear.
