choice…………………6.16.09

just because
you didn’t need it
in the seventies
doesn’t mean
it couldn’t
make sense
in today’s world

it doesn’t mean
you’ve sold out
when given
a choice
of basic comforts
or necessities
or modern day things
chosen
over poverty’s
minimalistic
existence

there is an undeniable
tragedy and silliness
a slight defect
of thought
and process
when letting poverty
win and
rule your life
particularly
when you
can afford
your world
to be
slightly
different

as exercise or exorcism, i write...for the eyes of others, for my eyes and heart only, for the love and the rage, i write...to release the gamut of emotion...to tell the truth and say what's often thought but not written...
