SAGE

Sage words

they come from a man

long in years and experience both

yet you see not the voice’s carry

through the arms of bowery trees

that echo laughter from insanely

putting away the useful

and keeping entailed those whose

differences make them

all the more useful to us.

“This weather is schizophrenic

his decision was schizophrenic

his behaviour was schizophrenic

his experience was schizophrenic

has derogatory tense

yet it is not the schizo-phrenic who sizes

up enemies like they are chosen for them

to make do with for their own purposes

like they do with schizophrenics

putting we away and asking

not how to make it to there and then

and not here and now as to know when to ask

if it is due to the weather or schizophrenia again?
