must it all make sense
dreaming or waking
question or answer
death or birth
this earth ?
do you see what I see
little drummer ?
is it good morrow
born of the past
or the flash at last
of dark to come
a rum pa pum pum ?
it's all in your drum

- Ralph Murre

I hope to God it must not all make sense. Yes, I think it's all in my drum, though some days this is easier to believe than other days.

I'm so glad there are poetry blogs for me to read--they are a wonderful reprieve from the billboards, bumper stickers and constant stream of advertising that clutter our american lives. I wish the world were 90% poetry and 10% the other junk, instead of the other way around. Some days it is, I guess it depends on my drum.
