PostSubject: moving freight   Wed Mar 14, 2012 4:01 pm


There's dirt under my fingernails

clawing at wet earth to no avail

what have i done?

where did i put it?

i seem to have misplaced

my round-tu-it.



i know He's coming

He is loving and kind

but also kind of stern



He'll want to know

what i've done in His absence

upon His return

"what have you learned?"



i buried it so well

in so many places

i can't distinguish one

in a sea of faces



memories blurred

vacant spaces

from prison cells they yell:

"your talents are being wasted!"



just because i drive a truck

they believe i'm still stuck

they shake their heads and murmur:

"tsk tsk what a shame...it drove him insane"



but i know what i've tasted

seems i'd always been looking for something

that had already found me

before i ever had the strength

to turn and face it.



"Oh ye' of little Faith...(sigh)"

Another hit. I'm so glad you did turn to face it! Loved this:

There's dirt under my fingernails
clawing at wet earth to no avail
what have i done?
where did i put it?
i seem to have misplaced
my round-tu-it.

Reminds me of a time when i bit into a slice of sicilian pizza and a hardened thorn shaped piece of crust imbedded right into an open nerve in a cavity. i writhed in pain grovelled in the dirt, learned something even then. The lesson really hit a nerve, it was painful but not wasted.
