the young, the the we, the all by Marcus If

By the virtue that we are children & were more so That young & exposed we were cunning enough to read That the society of the matured & even our peers rejected us That the chemicals were available the tradition existed That we were barefoot & hairy & each quiet w/ rifles That the continuous rush of adolescence is unquenchable That all the myriad illusion can be burnt to feed the blossom These things that I teach my sons. By this nourishment may their sapience grow That they may haunt the integral w/out need of mirrors That they may lithe maneuver, unfettered by encroachment, A fugue of river, earth, & will. That they may pursue the Wood on their own tough feet That they may endure the pipes & bodhran sounding in their veins That by a watchful moon they keep the oaths they make These things I guarantee my sons. This from the father, from a brother hard drawn to make it possible, From an unwavering voice that damns the machine. Marcus If teaches poetry at the Beyond Academia Free Skool every second Sunday at the Boulder Public Library, 2 p.m., always free.
