July 2009 – Independence

Yesterday, today
and all of my tomorrows
Independence Days

I can stand alone
and when I fall on my ass
I can pick me up

I have my own will
I can will you all away
I want you to stay
~Cara the Kid

the drugs and the booze
my mind in a haze days I lose
no independence
~The Turtle

i am free of want
except, wait, there’s some bacon
damn, back to square one
proving that everything
goes with Bacon

When I am here, I
am here – when I am gone, I
am gone. That’s freedom.

I am falling,
my ass will hit hard . . .
concussion for me?

Functions of my life
independence a daydream
artifice of mind.
~Enigmatic Knight
