All poetry is revolutionary

Because it demands you think of words
Not to convey information
And perhaps to lie,
Like so many users of words
– in commerce,
Education, statistics,
Journalism, politics.

All poetry is revolutionary
Because it takes Meaning back
To a place we all know
But perhaps have forgotten
When we were schooled to say
What has been said before
Instead what we see
And hear. And feel.

Poets are the true revolutionaries
Whatever we write about
Because we want you
To take back the tools
You knew
Before you learned how
You’re supposed to talk,
Read, see the world.

All poetry is revolutionary
Because it says
Take back your life
Own it
And make it
What it should be.

El Ghibli

El Ghibli è un vento che soffia dal deserto, caldo e secco. E' il vento dei nomadi, del viaggio e della migranza, il vento che accompagna e asciuga la parola errante. La parola impalpabile e vorticante, che è ovunque e da nessuna parte, parola di tutti e di nessuno, parola contaminata e condivisa.
