“…now she’s free to pursue her other interests”

according to funk n wagnalls

i can now follow

        in an attempt

           to overtake or capture….

i can chase


       or attain….

i can advance

    along the course

       applying my energies


            my chief interest….


i can now

     follow       your lies

         or chase       after one,  just ONE


who, pray tell

    will be financing

            this newfound

                freedom to pursue my other interests?

and who

     are you

            to determine that

                   this course

                         was ever my dream….

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...

    Linda: Tried to say hi when i was dropping off a grocery pick up last week and you were gone – no one would really tell me why, although i didn’t dig – this poem seems like it might have something to do with that – everything alright? – joe
