A found poem

Here:

I have pretended
to go mad
in order to tell you
the things I need to.
I call it art.

Because art is the word
we give to our feelings made public.
And art doesn’t worry anyone.
A poem, let alone a paragraph,
is not a magic spell.

And the only people who can write those
stay in padded rooms,
listening to music no one’s ever played.
I will stick with art for now.
