(the violence bears it away)
I "r-word" the children: me, village elder,
presbytering a kind of noetic circumcision
& cerebral clitorectomy continuing institutional-
ized traditions & the industrial constraints of
alma matrix, forcing kidlets to do my bidness
against their natural born willy/nillies & double
forcing them to pretend to LIKE IT, too.
sock it to me: I wouldn’t be doing it on
my own, not knowing what’s good for me:
take my attendance & attention efficiency
span & make me learn, damnit. Show me
uncanny Liberal Art as opposed to, as
differentiated from & not to be conflated,
collapsed & confused with the liberal arts.
of soundless, furtive fury so sub-liminal
it looks like teen spirit, like dedication &
discipline & no clothes line need demonstrate
the surreptitious secret school-daze rapture
going on all in the family. Mum’s the word:
this can’t be said without demoralization
round here or any where: a cultural relativity:
relaying Or relations relatively.
