Lie still now
while I prepare for my future,
certain hard days ahead,
when I'll need what I know ...

I regret to inform you

That you're all wrong. I was good friends with Lee when he was in Pittsburg growing up. Dude smoked a LOT of weed. He gets high, writes these minimalist poems after screwing his wife Donna, and then gets dumbshit pseudo intellectuals like all y'all to scratch you're heads over em. And he's gettin' famous! Haha. Blaze one, read his collections, and you'll get it.
