Credo

lyrics by Azure Carter

Every word forms a sentence
It's the last word of the sentence

It's a sentence of life and death
Every sound expels the breath

There's no other writing that means
Anything in the run of things

And carries everything that means
When the world is, it stings

I can't read poems that are just poems
Stories going nowhere and flat

There are no stories and poems
When language is only that

Urgency, hunger, intensity
Desperate immensity

Start something, mess it up
Don't ever write it up

This poem kills itself
Because it isn't itself

Whatever you think
Waste words, whatever you think

Every word forms a sentence
It's the last word of the sentence
