poem of the day
So then I realized maybe I've done the same thing. I started this blog the day I left CB last December as a way to rededicate myself to writing. I've written 215 posts since then, so... in a way, I'm still fulfulling my mission. However, I named myself reasonably prudent poet and I named my blog after my favorite poem by my favorite poet and, in general, I held the blog out as having some strong tie to poetry... and... well.... it doesn't.
To help rectify that situation, let me present, today's poem of the day.
A Man Said To The Universe -- by Steven Crane
A man said to the universe:
"Sir I exist!"
"However," replied the universe,
"The fact has not created in me
A sense of obligation."
Short sweet and to the point. This little guy comes from a collection called "War is Kind and Other Lines" -- Steven Crane was an anti-war kinda guy. And that's pretty nice. These days.
Not to mention, this is the relationship I feel I'm having with the universe lately. And that's kind of a bummer.
