This Poem 3

This poem could save your life.
This poem could save the world.
This poem
this very one that you’re reading
– or hearing,
if you bought the audiotape –
this poem could transform your perception
of the world around you
and effect change so powerful
that reality as you knew it
is gone
and a new existence instead
is where you instead live.
All from this poem.
All from these words.

This poem has potential.
This poem could be everything.
This poem could be anything.
This poem can lay things out differently
and it can react with you
or someone else
in inestimable ways.

Feel free to doubt it.
You have the right
to question these claims
and, rest assured,
in doing so
you can limit
this poem’s hold on you.
You can stop the potential.
You can halt the power.
You can believe
whatever you want.

That
is exactly
how this poem can become
such an agent of change.
Or some poem.
Maybe not this one.
