Make the World into a Field of Broken Glass

Show me the intellect, the written word, the person
who has opted to be among rather than above
respond rather than explain
and who refuses to
make the world into a field of broken glass
to introduce to unshod feet
as a matter of principle
for ideals must be cut into the bloodstream, yes?
if they are to Change the Way Things Are;
but let's talk about the operator of that first verb
in a different way
such that things may be
while ways are.
