Dead poets

Keep awake – alive – New.
Perform the paradox of being hard and yet soft.
Survive without calcification of the tender membranes.
Be a poet. Be alive.”

—Tennessee Williams, from Notebooks (1942)

Poet bodies keep alive desires
Of poets , both dead and alive,

They have to keep membranes
From a calcification or go soft

Let dead poets keep you alive
Before  a calcification sets in.
