A Poem – Permission

Avoid eye contact-
Be somber-
Smile nicely when you wish-

Have a drink
Take a shot
Pull

Your music plays-
They climb a fence to see
A moment is

Your face is nothing-
Pressed to the floor-
Uncovered

The corner tastes so nice
We aren’t alone any longer-
They are back and speaking

Why let go-
we can’t forget to be-
Is to please

Please – we beg all
In every one of us and the more-
Don’t ever not be

If we give permission for you-
Than let me be-
To be given permission to us

To be exactly who we are today

Odd Walking Thoughts – Cons

Come boisterous men! Come shrieking vixens! Insert into the glass castle with the clearest of walls. The show awaits. Let opinions rage wildly. Of course, you are the only one. Become yourselves and let the audience bathe in your greatest volume, for the glass shimmers for a reason to shatter.
