Back Pocket Book Entry 15


The heart is not

a democracy

republic or oligarchy

but a monarch

 

And the eyes its footsoldiers

the mouth

its diplomat

 

the ears

its Cabinet

whose advice

may or may not

be taken

into account.

 

The gut and soul

are thrown in the dungeon

Until the heart

has heard

from its troops

 

and advisors,

 

Has sent out the ambassador

and then

 

maybe then prisoners

can be set

free

 

if and only if

they

fully agree.
