endless chasm/33/soul love saga

spring 2013 056
This endless chasm of indigestion
led to this moment of true delirium
If I check the mail one more time
I might just see a job for me.
So I search:
the papers, the listings and online
I put on my best clothes
not showing any hint of my recession
I set off walking
to see what I could accomplish.
The birds started spilling out
the roof to see what they could see.
Me doing what I detest. Picking
up anything that will pass me
through till tomorrow
bottommost
I saw a sign
posted in a window
when I went for coffee
when I should have been drinking tea.
I hid my eyes
so I wouldn’t notice
and I would have to apply
Some things in life just aren’t free
I can see when the wind blows
that there will be a job for me
It’s not in the arts,
nor teaching,
or food
manufacturing the world
of industrialization.
There is simply nothing
that interests me.
I put my name
on every list that contains
info. Gave every last piece of me I had.
Till the sky turned green
and snowed in July
I rocked the boat and bounced so high.

Indigo’s raising indigo’s/37/soul love saga

fall and winter of 2011-2012 059There is not a day

where I am not tested beyond

the limits of what I can handle.

With my craft and religion

nagging at me,

words fly around my head

unable to find their place on the page.

Due to rage

or running from

one place to another,

 any obligation that roots

me to reality

keeps me from

running free and traveling

down new roads.

A baby mess,

a chlild’s  needs,

all a priority

to the creation of work

that needs space +time.

Kids yearning to thrive

some of them arn’t even mine.

Bouncing through life

with no care for guidance

or respect

indigo’s raising indigo’s.
