Letters to the Editor

Poem: art

things that make me nervous.

things that make me laugh.

ask me hard questions.

give absurdity its due.

both or either.

i don’t ask for much.


just all I ever wanted.

make it true.

take me someplace I recognize.

take me to a place I’ve never been.

you wanna surprise me.

that’s gravy, too.

you wanna dance me around the room

with your finesse of the thing?

spin my head? rock my world?

that’ll do.

— Brian Hutton
