Parrhesia

 
some fool
left a poem
out in the sun
where
ultra-violent
rays burnt
new meanings
into old ideas

the poem
grew so large
it needed
6 tall poets
to carry it
thru
the streets
so all the world
could read it

in the end
the poem
grew
so strong
it had
to be silenced

so it was captured
&
dismantled
line by line
word by word
&
all things
returned
to normal
