In Defense of Catharsis

A poet friend mentioned
that he’s tired
of catharsis
or moved beyond
it

I think moving beyond
is a great idea
really
To reinvent
we must forget
what we know

And yet
pain cuts through …
pleasure puts you
in the seventh heaven,
to borrow more
mundane words

And distress
makes you want to
flirt with the
beaten paths
where someone gets
what
you want
to say

Where they know
your language,
and you their
and it’s OK
even if you’re
not too happy
at least they know
you’re not
