(to john lennon)
I am my own disciple.
I am a poet from the 21st Century
and I carry no verses, except for those I bring into being.
I do not worship you
I am of those you condemned
and those you saved.
It is at my discretion
whether my soul exists or ceases to exist.
and, for god's sake,
I have always been my own maker.
Those who do not know you
will call me insolent.
Those who know me
will call me the same.
But even then,
why don't you walk with me?
After all, it's a beginning of a new day.
