Copies And Riffs - Poem by gershon hepner

Sometimes we copy and sometimes we riff,
creating from one text a second, a fun text
engaging the first by inquiring, “What if
we could move it and see it when changed by its context? ”
The copyright laws place a limit on making
a copy, restrictive as hieroglyph rites,
but there are no laws on the books you are breaking,
revisiting rightfully texts with riffrites.
