Something – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

“Our need to reimagine our world through the vibratory larynx, that’s what matters.” Anne Waldman


Everything is in flux,
the pundits are immersed 
in tragedies longer than a 
tudor gown, and everyone
is worried for the canary in
the coal mine who sings 
warnings like a harpy, and
I'm thinking out loud that we
need a circuit breaker, a new
song of imagining, reimagining,
something to end this malaise,
something to feed our senses,
something of creative pleasure,
something beyond the heroics
of mundane, powerless survival.
