ANTHEM

sing these poems
softly, to
yourself

by no means full-
throated, decibels
belting out

nor
tall
as a
flagpole

huge as
a mountain, sacred
as a pylon

no these are
words you
may take time
to pore over
lying on
your back
way
less than
full stretch

for this
is a poem, not
some godawful anthem

the words here
have meaning, find meaning
every time
they are read
