write to me……for ben pleasants

the last memorable words

you said to me    after our meeting

were

“write to me just like you wrote to steve”

like letters to new friends and old poets

can be spewed out at whim           or copied into small press form

mass produced with all the       heartfelt emotion and realism

or copied diligently      in the hand of a child…

i read online today

the words of those waiting to

‘stand in line to piss on your grave’

and i wondered:

how many cigar smokin’

w-village livin’

moto minister haters

there just might be

standing there with

member in hand someday…

i never felt any emotion

worthy of the effort

it would have taken

to sit and write to

you, one of the LA old-school

writer boys

but the infusion of hatred

you’ve managed to inspire

across many boards

was riveting

finally making me feel something

worth writing to you

as exercise or exorcism, i write...for the eyes of others, for my eyes and heart only, for the love and the rage, i write...to release the gamut of emotion...to tell the truth and say what's often thought but not written...
