in unselfconscious times

he throws fierce tin cans
at half silhouettes
whilst i press on
with tough-soft kindness
dancing with words
missing the paper
in unselfconscious times

energy creates
energy is a dirty lip
energy is not a dirty lip
animated half-truths
in an admired journal

    Reminds me of the poetry in those beatnik cafes of the 50’s and 60’s. Very spontaneous and cryptic.

    I find it “hard to define”… a very mysterious poem. I like its rhythm though.
