I wish

I wish that I

could see things

in new original ways,

not through tired

thoughts that have

oft been said and

no longer satisfy

or add anything

new to the state

of world.


I wish,like Macbeth,

that the state of the

world could be undone,

but not as he thought,

in ways destructive,

or in despair,

but in new thoughts

of revolution and

challenge that

shift the same-old

and replace mediocrity

with a new dawn.


I want to break through

and breakup and reform

so that all the oldness that

is filled with desperation

Is cleared away.
