Good writing, with a strong point and with life oozing out.

Everything Must Change is struggling mightily against the conventional conference format (and perhaps not victoriously). But they are at least singing new songs, and talking about truly fresh ideas, and acting on the somewhat unusual expectation that attenders bring their own creativity. Here’s something that bubbled up after a very long and stressful week:

I am a live wire
charged and laying loose
coiled and slithering
ready to strike others
but more frequently
to turn on myself

I am not only awake
to reform
and others
I am

so raw
so enlivened
so electric
that I only discharge
again and again
finding my mark
and delivering my blow

all spark
and no fire
