Poems from New York, #13

we say to ourselves

remember this

and yet we rarely do

where it counts

where real courage is needed

‘ain’t ready to quit’ JA sings

we aren’t ready until we are

I’m interested in it until I’m not, Bill T says

We’re inside until we’re out

we’re inside until we’re not


the next time I want ice cream

I’ll probably eat it

even though later

it makes me feel sick


anything else would require real change

and I haven’t changed yet
