A Poem Will Understand Me Before I Can, A Poem by Chris Russell

You label me crazy

when I say that

when I write

a poem I think

will understand

me before I can,

the part of me

that eats a steak

and cheese

before tasting it

thinks he can

become anything

by reading it.

But labeling

me crazy means

you have to be

because you can’t

know something

without becoming it.

If you want to know

what I think,

you just think

your crazy is more

appropriate

and valuable than

mine is.
