This is my 12th month featuring in Medusa’s Kitchen… 9 poems, 9 fotos, 1 song.
As usual, editor/publisher Kathy Kieth’s layout is superb. I’m grateful for her generosity.
Now to continue month by month into the unforeseeable future.
Free will ain’t free
more fee will if you please
when you don’t bow down on knees
Philosophy is song sung of soul and self
to restock the shelf
A few hints to focus flow
help shoulder the burden of go
Every moment has 360 degrees of exit
but when is best to flex it?
Can’t stay past, future ain’t here
then don’t last, when not near
Don’t run the wheel
repeal the deal
Past talk shapes tomorrow’s lips
As the child is father to the man
we are mother to our darkness
give birth to our own sin
Gettin’ weary but ain’t givin’ up
this burden on back busting my nut
keep sloggin’ thru muck
hopin’ for luck
can’t quit cuz no consolation prize
unless reward is giving up lies
otherwise work till you die
in this worship of why
