The Project 2



The project is to deny yourself what you want
without denying what you want,
a radical commitment to presence
in an era of erasure.

The project is to, when able,
learn to appreciate
your ability to appreciate.

The project is to to curate and cull
your experiences and acquisitions
the knuckle that knocks,
the tongue that talks.

The project is to project.
Give all that you have,
like the sun.  Shine.
