A Different Lane
« on: July 13, 2012, 10:25 AM »
You rattle my cage when all I  choose to see
is the rose dawn over a six-lane highway
not the nose pickers, the mother slapping her child
across the face, the masturbators who ignore
the green light.
I see more than you know. I've lingered at the prison
with a sack lunch for Marie. Mike holds the
record for going without a bath, knows my perfume
under the bridge near White River.
You can douse me with judgment, but you can't
wreck my four wheel drive.
I am on the right course. The little boy in Indonesia
remembers me when the bandages are removed.
And though he sees, and I barely do, I'm okay with that.
Somethings are better left to fog, some figures
better left to atrophy.

Kay,

This is so powerfully sad. I fully agree that some things are left to the fog.

Where's Kay? What have you done with her. You can't abduct her and take her to Mars! This surely doesn't sound like our Kay.
 :tongue

I agree. There are some powerful images in this!!

Anne, ( I love your avatar, btw) it is sad. Thanks for coming in to this. It's a bit strong for me, I guess.

Witt, 

love to see Venus!  It doesn't sound like me, does it? I think I wanted to go for some stark
reality. Something different than my usual fare. Glad you popped in. Thank you!  :rose

Although this is different, Kay, I still hear your specific voice and that's what counts.   :rose

Rg, there's an old song By Kenny Rogers, :coffee

I just stopped in to see what condition my condition was in

I don't know about the queen, some days more like a loyal subject to the written word. :wine
