A MetaPoetik Response to my Poem


My brilliant friend Delvin wrote me a "metapoetik" response to my poem "We" his contributions in italics.


We
Us

We, self shackled warriors weep,
keys in hand,
wailing for release.

we, dreamers and visionaries
toolsets primed
locks calling our keys


We, the saviors of our shared destiny,
whose false ineptitude cripples,
fear our power.

we, the curators of the flow
shadowed by doubt
alone we are strong, together we are stronger

"Shine bright dear hearts!"
Our mentors call forth,
a reminder.

teachers arrive
a collective force
gathered from a lineage carried along through time

That we alone turned away,
and we alone turn toward
Our Embodied Freedom.

forgetting the false
together turning towards
our collective delite


- Greg Wendt and Delvin Solkinson
