I recently read a politically incorrect prolific poet,
or so I thought at the time,
or more felt than thought,
Who said, If poetry is politically correct,
it cannot be poetry.
So, if he is politically correct
in this statement,
is he thereby also not a poet in good standing?
An enigma to which I respond,
If so, then politically incorrect messages
also cannot be poetic,
but tragically disempowering.
Meaning that poetry has power
to change how we feel,
and sometimes listen
and sometimes speak about our relationships.
What are political relationships
if not correctly co-empowering
and incorrectly fragmenting
without healthy reason
and without wealthy rhyme.
But, now I see this poet’s concern more intentionally.
If a poet’s intent is merely political correctness,
orthodox dogma of some monoculturally dangerous variety,
with no faithful participation
in our ongoing collective integrity,
co-relational organic powers for healthy communicating minds
still hoping to feed and feel healthy bodies,
then wealthy empowerment
becoming metaphorically richer
on Earth’s universal meaning together,
not accessible by apartheid and absolute supremacy,
with synergetic beauty
become mere utilitarian truth,
and thereby RightBrain incorrect.
WinWin bicameral therapeutic intent
is politically correct,
as seen in narratives of healing
and epic poetry
of time’s co-relational passage
musing into Paradise/Hell
and natural seasons
speak with/without spiritual co-relational reasons.
