WINTER 2018-2019


Antonio Bellia


Think big, for if
You don’t,
You will think small, and then smaller.

If you think small
You will end down
In need of

Sure enough, the
Assistant will

That assistant might
Assuage your small needs,
Even your small

He will be a false
But to you,
The smallness of
Your own mind
Will be his aggrandizement.

His insatiable desire
To be worshipped and to
Gain power
Could cause more, or even all
 To think small.
