Following the Rules by MJ Logue

I am not a silent poet

Hugs are good.

Work hard, and do your best, and be proud of your good work.

My boy is seven.

When he is grown up, the world will teach him

To forget those rules.

Chant. Chant. Chant. Pray
Gauri Lankesh emerge out of your coffin
in the second…
