of course...

This poem was originally typeset in uppercase.

   OF COURSE
   A GUILT-RIDDEN
DOG-EARED
CLICHÉ
   OF BARS
   AND ROOMS
OF CONTROL
LAUGHS
   CRIES
   AND PASSION
AND DISSENT
OF COURSE
   YOU HAD TO SIT
   AND LIE
AND HALLUCINATE
AND SEE IT
   FOR YOURSELF
   AS CLICHÉ
AS IT IS
IT CHANGES YOUR
PERSPECTIVES A BIT
   ABOUT WHAT YOU ARE
AND WHO THE WORLD IS
