I just don't have the energy to be stupid

all which isn't singing is mere talking
and all talking's talking to oneself
(whether that oneself be sought or seeking
master or disciple sheep or wolf)

gush to it as diety or devil
-toss in sobs and reasons threats and smiles
name it cruel fair or blessed evil-
it is you (ne i)nobody else

drive dumb mankind dizzy with haranguing
-you are deafened every mother's son-
all is merely talk which isn't singing
and all talking's to oneself alone

but the very song of(as mountains
feel and lovers)singing is silence

Unfortunatly for me, I don't need energy. It just comes naturally. :)
"all talking is talking to oneself"... ain't THAT the truth!!

Hope you're feeling better soon.

I need all the surplus energy that anyone has to spare as I'm always in short supply.

I love poetry Okjimm and especially ee cummings

Incredibly lovely. Did someone say something about energy? ee cummings is always a tasteful and interesting idea.

I think I'm just floating in a bubble and it's very quiet in here.
