"The act of poetry is a rebel act."

Poem of the Week: “The Design” by Thomas Kinsella

The Design

Goodness is required.
It is part of the design.
Badness is understood.
It is a lapse, and part of the design.

Acknowledgement of the good
and condemnation of the bad
are required. Lapses
are not understood.

Thomas Kinsella, from Selected Poems (2010)
