Poets Inc. Mission Statement

Poets Inc. Mission Statement

We help heath-bound Lear
get down to brass tacks,

Odin, not heavy-hammered Thor,
cross-dressed we slay our foes

with mead-mad puns, or hare,
coyote, raven, not Manitou,

trick & trade our ways
through truth’s tight corners,

like Judas fulfilling God’s plans
betraying Him, our Hermetic

metaphors eloquent as Duchamp’s
fountain, necessary

as any well-wrought urn, as Harpo
our dumb hero of the word.
