COME ON IN, BEND YOUR SKIN

COME ON IN, BEND YOUR SKIN

Chosen for Me


trying to face the function
of rapid thought
a message comes in
uninvited in the strata
of synthetic waves
chosen for me

chosen for me
ten thousand words
before they’re combined
in the silence of one
as to derive a sum
my thoughts wear thin

how do I know if it’s me thinking it
how do I know if I’m not free willing
where have I been
on a political spin

trying to piece together
what’s on my mind
reality is countering
rhetoric with reason
and sometimes a rhyme

trying to catch the good one
before it gets away
stack paper on paper
bind and behold them
to be read another day

find a space between the spaces
find a way to bridge across
the mind to the heart
is a good place to start

aw
