Here's what you can do
sing into a paper cone to release
the bad air into a jar put a lid
on the jar and walk through Brooklyn
with the jar in your hands
when you get to the river chuck it into the water
and clap in a way that is both mournful
and celebratory it will be difficult
to do both simultaneously but it will
be necessary and you will feel better
knowing the jar is floating all over
the place with your bad air in it
air enough for a lyric were it
moving through your mouth
now roll up your sleeves and get to work.

I must say, I linked over to your blog and this poem is rhythmic, it flows. I was there with the air in that jar. Masterful and creative. Thank you
