on Status Quo & Status Symbol

THE WORLD NEEDS more poetry: people don’t need someone selling to them . ..they need to feel human again, reminded that careers and errands and bells and whistles — the status-quo status symbols — are not even worth the resell value of used toilet paper, in the grand scheme of things.

Yes, dear reader, the world needs poetry . ..because hearing musical and imaginative language will never harm a child, even if it’s well above their reading level, and it will remind adults that it’s okay to be a kid again.
