ERSTWHILE BANNED

Folder: 
SLEEPY TIME POEMS

 

I’ve already tried

to seek answers

in all the great books

erstwhile banned in these parts

but somehow contraband copies

always seemed to seep thru borders

 

Yet in spite my best intentions

I found the solutions proffered

to be somewhat lacking

in meaningful substance

 

Laying in bed

with jasmine incense burning

staring at the ceiling

yet I find myself 

questioning my faith

and examining my life

 

not seeking solace in Blake

or Nietzsche or Dostoevski

but just wallowing in July heat

expecting better

and getting this instead.

Inside The Moment Write

I stare at the trees above the houses out my window - and still I get this too. Viva la contraband! :D slc
