The Cutting Edge – A Poem by E. Ethelbert Miller

THE CUTTING EDGE

      (for Bovey)

Democracy
is not paper

it is something
living

at times
bleeding (but free).

The artist
must take

a knife
to the world.

   – E. Ethelbert Miller

Ethelbert Miller is my friend, a poet, author, and literary activist based in Washington D.C.
