‘MOST IMPORTANT I MUST FEEL’
Most important I must feel
or I feel no thing but the single pain.
I am a very emotional man.
I have no wit. I am never well expressed.
No libations are given to me. It is an unworthy
life that does not get applause.
So many must feel.
So many must hate themselves for what is unsaid.
I hate myself for what I feel inside my head
that will never play a violin or paint in red.
St-Lambert, circa 1981.
