Common Mouth

We are always right.

 We always agree in what we say
because we say yes to our language.

 Common mouth,
gutter mouth,
says “yes” to you.

 I could say, “I love you”,
and get away with it.

Escaping Injury

There are bees,
wasps.

 Wind
stays put.

Bio: Dane McCauley

After graduating from the University at Albany (New York) with an English Education degree, Dane travelled through the noose of careers as high school English teacher, professional musician and songwriter, freelance copywriter, and music critic.

When not scraping knees and stubbing toes in the pursuit of making something out of nothing, he believes in will over skill (except for surgeons), schooling over drooling (except for surgical patients), and that bad parenting rules the world (to the gratitude of poets and weapons merchants everywhere).
