I listen to greenhouse poems grown out of season, large with theory, but short on feeling. I am in the middle, somewhere between the admins and the freedom addicts. “Why is it so quiet?” “Because something great is going to happen, or nothing at all.” The poet laughs in our faces, but doesn’t see us. His baby is out in a world without welfare. Children need structure to survive. Or at least, some kind of love.
