The Art of Roasting
Poets are at their best when perfectly in
sane. Their insanity helps normal peo
ple see a little bit more straight.
Artists are inspired when t
hey go beyond what facades cl
aim; ordinary people are content with Mon
day mourning de-caf drinks.
The world is much wider than
we are taught to believe and in
this laife I've tasted but a few dr
ops ah Amazing Koffee -

|Ella:||Who's sane? Who's insane? There's something curiously political about that dichotomy.|
|Juanita:||In fact, I'm not even sure that a dichotomy is warranted. I believe all of us navigate around a constantly changing spectrum of sanity/insanity.|
|Ella:||Yeah, and unconsciously, most of us have a way of believing anything too far from our own views is insane. What I like about this poem is the way it points out how words can roast the soul. What is poetry but a fuel to ignite the mind?|
