I Gotta Be Me Not You

Vintage Words


For the last time, and then the topic

closes, siphoning off my body fluids

won't work. Look until your dreams break,

I relinquish  none of what you must earn 



Glean, scrape, capture a word and take

it with you. That is where a dreamer

lives vicariously. One day, some year,

you will enter a room with a desk and paper,

quill and ink, and like Zivago, you

will become you.
