    This earth he has traveled
    Far and yonder
    The man in the suitcase
    The constant wanderer
    Hotel and motel are second homes
    The temporary sustaining shelter all alone
    Through cities,
    states, provinces counties
    Parishes, towns, villages
    Continents and countries
    Wandering
    Searching
    Reflect
    Learning
    Embracing domestic and
    world culture as just human culture
    Growing in inner strength
    Acquiring greater knowledge
    And apply the knowledge as wisdom
    To bring him in touch
    With self
    Making him a more interesting and alluring catch.

    I have chosen to not forgo
    My forgiveness pill
    I want the chance to let go
    Release
    Vent my body naturally
    Never forgetting my vegetables
    Will give me the ability to lighten my life
    In many ways
    While it's appropriate to blow up
    I chose to let it go
    So I will get that chance of
    Putting down
    What's bad for me
    And
    Get to the good of it all.

    I got gravitational utopia
    So down to earth
    This is where the fire be
    Coming from the ground
    Held off by assumed few
    Words come and go
    But to where
    To bring you to the utopia
    Of
    Force
    Them to join you where you be
    Hurt
    And All
    Then let it go
    To the clouds
    Where we end up without the Utopian control of gravity.
    Then forgetfulness
    will be your virtue
    for giving a new route to continuation.

    I evolve
    From hippie girl
    To mom
    Wife
    Divorced

    Single mother
    With babies
    Old woman
    With grandchildren

    I evolve
    Am the same
    But different
    Daily

    Time stops for no one

    As it turns out
    Unbeknownst to me and others
    You are indigenous
    To your species
    Spawned from hell

    I carry your last name
    Reluctant to change for records
    And cost but I claim it not
    As I sign it
    There it is mocking me

    Prayers sent up daily
    To unentangle me from any memory
    Of loving monsterious creatures
    I used to call family
    To keep me free and at peace

    Although you are indigenous
    Did not mean you had to
    Continue in the traditions
    Of making a loving woman's life
    Hell

    You flambe your brain
    Everytime you put pipe to mouth
    Crack
    Cracked our life together right open

    Not much spilled
    But let me escape never looking back
    Not much regard for your own health
    Smoking still after your stroke

    I run not willing to be part of your
    Next dinner of selfishness
    And the pretty blue blaze
    Of flambe brains

    Next word: waffle

    Bear!
    They yelled
    Annie get your gun
    General kerfuffle in the middle
    Of a small forested town

    Really!
    Didn't you move here
    To get away from the city
    Teach your kids about animals
    That don't live in zoos

    Careful!
    You grab your kids and whine
    They imitating you now crying
    Annie bursts onto the scene
    Gun in hand

    Look!
    Education in fear
    Not rationality
    Annie points her gun
    But bear butt disappeared behind a tree

    See!
    The bear ran away at your first yell
    Fast as bear feet can run
    Now that was the education
    You failed to see

    Next word: squall

    Who's at fault
    The polluted air
    Who is good to go around
    Still the sight of cluttered words
    How this has fallen upon us
    The want of
    getting out
    maybe through
    the hole
    of floating free.
    No ending of adding onto
    The next pressure
    of why not believe
    In the atmosphere
    I float
    So not free
    Where the holes at to bring me up & through?
    To be electromagnetic

    Next Word: other side

    To me ye be as electromagnetic
    cling to the script thee scribe
    as I ride da waves of verses
    like a sweet curse or worse
    as ever electric current swivel
    the magnetic field disappears
    right before me when the current
    of ya pen is turned off.

    Electromagnets is da wire of
    our connection running off da heart
    driving force keep scribing
    as I ride the electro wave
    craving it for another shock.

    we're

    wildflowers

    swaying beautifully

    and strong in cruel winds as

    the

    world's

    atmosphere

    tries to cast shade on us

    by

    shining

    artificial sun on

    white lillies but everyone knows

    the real dealio

    direct sunlight burns

    lilly whites to

    red ashes​
