asemic poetry – discarded page

You actually think I care if this
Poem gets off the ground or not. Well
I don’t care if this poem gets off the ground or not
And neither should you.
All I have every cared about
And all you should ever care about
Is what happens when you lift your eyes from this page.

Let Me Make This Perfectly Clear –
by Gwendolyn MacEwen
From:   Afterworlds. McClelland & Stewart, 1987
