Sean Penn has written a novel! According to BookRiot, “A poem in the novel refers to the “#MeToo” movement, criticizing its reduction to ‘a platform for accusation impunity’ and asking whether due process has ‘lost its sheen.'”
Is this true? I don’t know! But it inspired my muse! And when the muse strikes you just have to let her hit you, which is a phenomenon the press does not cover enough when it keeps focusing on men hitting women!
A Poem in Sean Penn Quotes
by Sean Penn
(with Marjorie Ingall
We sit within the quietude of fortified walls
Thereâ€™s a lot of mediocrity being celebrated.
I think we all have light and dark inside us
I am a Justin Timberlake fan
Weâ€™ve let the blade of our innocence dull over time,
itâ€™s only in innocence
that you find any kind of magic.
Iâ€™m a huge Woody Allen fan.
When I do journalism, I take no payment
I once had a house burn downâ€¦and it was so liberating
On a romantic level
if you feel it about somebody and it’s pure,
it means that they do too.
There is a strength of character
in the people who have,
by and large,
never experienced comfort.
I donâ€™t consider myself specifically political, you know.
What is it
removes all doubt from a man’s eyes?
Is it power?
Iâ€™m not a breakfast eater
