For the Love of Words

Write it, damn you!  
What else are you good for?
 
~ James Joyce    
   
For the Love of Words  
   
My dream    
is for writers here    
not to just have fun    
but to also love the Word    
   
LOVE Poetry!    
   
Love it as you love your belongings    
because it will outlast them    
   
Love it as you love your home    
because it will survive collapse    
   
Love it as you love your mate    
because it is infinite      
   
When all is said and done    
and you have become immaterial    
all that will remain is the poem    
for generations to come    
   
Dip your feather-tipped individuality    
in the inkwell of breath and register    
each moment, and the next      
experience by experience    
   
as a testament you lived    
~
