my life (back again)

And fiddled whisper music on those strings

~

let’s all
get back
to normal

let it
rip
so we can
just
get over it

go back
to work

back
to school

stop talking
about the numbers

they’re only
numbers

what I want
to get over . . .

get beyond

are the weasel words
of politicians
who hold us back . . .

push us
forward . . .

shove us in
with two hands

haul us out
with
shouting
and suggestion
and mandate
and demand
and plea and . . .

one day soon
I’m
going to break
out

one day

I will breathe
the rotten air
and
call it sweet
again

one day
I’ll
take my chances

stop listening

stop
quivering
and trembling
and
being afraid

one day soon
I’ll
take my life
back
again

  1. Amen to that Frank I am quite certain the Lord would not be too cross with me for saying that. You have encapsulated the irony of the power-hungry and the little people well. Oh for the good old days when you could see someone smile. Stay safe
