People Smoke A Joint Because 2010

People Smoke A Joint Because/one of my practice poems

 People smoke a joint because

It calms them down,

It makes them laugh.

The symmetry of mediocrity’s

Conventions flee.

It also makes them hungry.

Answers come, and often laughter

Is the payoff.

Groups ingested LSD

To see more beauty,

Dig into the new

Change patterns that were old in mind,

Find truths that were not there to find,

Break down, build up

And sip the cup

Of everything there is to sip.

People drink because they are

More able to shift gears,

Take risks,

Lose fears.

The problem is to lay off.

Get it? Payoff. layoff?

I liked that.
