draw

6-5/6-2017

 

draw knife, feel energy

of strife, striding wide

 

we sprint for tons or die

piece-meal cash to vie

 

one fellow draws anger nigh

others hate, I retaliate

 

first: passive courtesy' worth

then: rhetoric endlessly forth

 

break word and destroy grind

change gear or cow before the prying

 

(he manipulates the time, screaming silent)

lucky he didn't meet a few years strident

 

such a pacifist am I

that a cricket can defy

 

what happened to my corrupt soul

what tole hath compassion stole
