i've thought of a poem that would be based on not
for example today when i went crabbing and experienced dawn to dusk hauling
with sweat as a by-product
but instead words of the more contemporary sort in which
experience and sweat are salty poles apart
separated like magnets
not of
or in the same universe
the one
one might say merely references the other
or foregrounds it
or envelops it in practice
sweat you'll note at this point in our discourse
does not show up in bibliographies
for a very good reason
it cannot count as equity academically
it is however awfully good for a person
if one were to google sweat
advice is mostly what you'd get
medical and stuff of that ilk
nothing necessary
to the absolute thisness
of this
i'll bet
