Note to Men of their Time

Dear Fathers, You founded us wanting. We’re still in this agreement with hell. If you couldn’t tell right from wrong what does it matter what you meant to say? You should stay in the past where you belong. Sincerely,  Pursuing Happiness

Note to Note is a daily exercise in observing, witnessing, taking note of something, someone, some thought. The effort is inspired by the prodigious telephone poems of the great poet Pedro Pietri. I heard him read many of those short and often humorous poems, and saw the great big book he read them from. Yet to be published in full, you can find some of his telephone poems in an anthology of his poetry, Pedro Pietri, Selected Works recently published by City Lights Books. And perhaps one day these notes of mine will find their way in to print, but you can indulge yourself right here, right now, for nothing but your valuable time.
