"It's about words, and words are all I have…"

swine

so busy being free  no time to decipher

the vacancy  of dying eyes  is she dead

or alive?   or just almost dead?   am i?

 

freedom is hard work   driving to the

airport  regularly   staring at the names

of places on my list:

 

oxford mississippi

taos

heaven (better than the alternative my obygyny said)

san fran

lafayette looziana

 

now back in the car   forgot to pack the blo-dryer

and later that night  trapped inside of the giant

SEPHORA    trapped inside of me

 

oh so  unfree   but please don’t tell anybody

leonard+joni fly by  lovers in 65    but she was

too much woman for him

 

depressed jew-bu

me too

minus the bu

 

he called her mrs. beethoven   i’ve recently been

called worse  can u believe that someone actually

disparaged my inner child? !!   now that takes some

imagination  alongside a penchant for casting swine

before the pearls

__

 

things i’ve been called:

peaches

cougar

ape

evil loser   (sticks+stones eh)

 

 

Fall 2019  ..casting pearls before the swine..

 

A quotation from Matthew 7:6 in Jesus’s Sermon on the Mount:

“Do not give what is holy to the dogs; nor cast your pearls before swine,

lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you in pieces.”
