“Up to Me” (National Poetry Month, 4.22.22)

Dear Vanessa,

It took me a few weeks to work  in the 2016 Nobel Laureate of Literature  in these NPM missives to you. Is he a poet?  He’d say “song-writer.”

This is  one of my favorites (but what can “favorite” mean when I’ve 30 songs in this category?).

You can read  aloud the lyrics, then listen to the recording.

How do I square songs like this with Nhat Hanh’s teaching?

I don’t. 

I remain unsquared. I hold it all.
