Toasting Erich Fromm

Positive freedom,

nose in the wind

Negative freedom,

refusing within

 

Shaking and straining,

the spirits set free

To pour or leave empty,

 at times disagree

 

Positive, Negative,

the labels of truth

Distilled combination

—like gin and vermouth

 

(Villanova University: February, 2021)
