Jacqueline Jackson 6-9-05

clutterpoem #1

you have to look
to your heroes
mine is nobel laureate
alan guth
who says I would rather
keep a pile of junk
assuming there is
something there I want
than throw the whole thing
away and regret it
he is pictured
in his MIT office awash
in a paper sea I am
trying to find a place
to tape the photo up
