I exist …

In extension of Descartes‘ “Je pense, donc je suis”:

I exist. Furthermore, I fully support the existence of all others. The only people who shouldn’t exist are the people who toss their finished cigarette butts out of their car windows on freeways or city streets as if the world is their ashtray which it is not. Everyone else is fine though.

– Rick Lupert, poet

From Rick Lupert’s page Who The Hell Am I. Besides being the author of several volumes of poetry, he operates a site called Poetry Super Highway with a Poets of the Week feature.
