you don’t need pants to read poetry

you don’t need pants to read poetry

you just need a familiar bed or a good solid floor or a tree (half-dressed, like you) or a non-pretentious fireplace

and some poetry

don’t forget the poetry

or do

but in a way that is like a meditation

so that the poetry doesn’t get in the way of itelf

know what I mean, man?

yeah

reading poetry without pants is like walking without shoes

it’s what nature intended

don’t read poetry in the snow

Interesting. Kind of reminds me of beat poetry. I don’t know if that’s what you were going for, but that’s the vibe it gave me.

Love the “bare” imagery. Enjoyed your work.

I liked it. Especially the title. Funny and well spoken.
