Looking for Pessoa

the poet is a fool who 
writes for other fools.
both searching for 
some sort of hidden 
meaning in things,     
behind things
or to one side.
using conglomerations 
of words as lumber supports,
aphrodisiacs,
and lotions.    

us poets are the jesters 
of your nightmares--
the blanks for your 
rifle-tubes.    
few of us make 
any sense,   
none of us are 
looking any further 
inside than the nostrils.

if you are looking for truth, 
tear the curtains from your walls.
if you are looking for morality, 
open up your hearts... 
and if itís equity 
you are searching out, 
donít.
