Thought Structures

As poets we like to think of ourselves as a few of those who like to think

But to think takes a lot of thinking thoughts that the audience should resonate with

And thus the thought structures and psychoanalytical patterns to be drawn

Have to have the backing of the thought-structures of the people around us

What am I saying?

That to think the way we think the audience must think that way

So that whatever we stand to project, or protect, to perceive and to protest

They must be the same things that society wants to project or protect, to perceive and to protest

Thus when we speak of things that annoy us and the State decides to silence us

It is not silencing the poets but silencing the audience that likes to think that it thinks.

What am I saying?
