Go Solar!

Today I’m renovating my study,

solarizing my words and diction,

solarizing my philosophic outlook,

solarizing my mood and behavior.


I am a sunnier person

and the proof of it is

that I sit in splendiferous umbra,

drinking wine in communion

with the sun and the universe,

as well as the words I speak.


I urge you to solarize.

I have nothing to gain

from this energy-renewal process,

but everything to lose—

if everyone solarizes their words,

then there would be

no purpose for poetry,

since everyone would utter poetry

to children, spouses, and churches.


Do not employ another company

for your solarization.

Solarize yourself, family, and friends.

Let me know how sunny you’ve become.
