POETRY | POEM 11 |
Philosophy Tout Nu
 

You live in a value-
free universe.

You own your own body.

You can do anything
you have
the power to do.

So can everyone else.

It’s best to tread lightly,
know you’ll bear
the consequences of your acts,

and may sometimes have
to deal with those
who do not understand
all this.
