Scott Wozniak

GET TO SMASHING

I've heard it said
that windows
are made for gazing
out on the world,
and they are
a poet's best friend.

Well, I believe
that windows
are made for smashing,
and the sound
of shattering glass
is the poet's true voice.

So go,
grab a brick
and raise it high
before your target,
then throw and let
your voice rain down.

Scott confesses: "This poem was written as a response to a Billy Collins poem wherein he makes the first stanza statement. It's also my trying to give description to that beautiful sound of glass being released from its inanimate confines in correlation to the need for more people to speak truth."
