Do Not Recite Your Poem

Do not recite your poem.
Do not read your poem.
Do not present your poem.
Your poem deserves a better fate.

Sing your poem.
Proclaim your poem.
Shout your poem.
Cry your poem.
Declare it.
Dance it.
Argue it.
Torture it.
Preach it, pray it, spray it, spew it.
Make your poem shine forth.

Do not recite your poem,
Sing it.
And do not live your life.
I charge you,
Make your life a poem, and
Sing it, sister, sing it.
