it’s all right there

30 Nov

when i look inside myself

i see the whole world

all the anger and pain

the ass kicker

and the ass that’s been kicked

all the petty jealousies

all the love given

and never returned

it’s all right there

in this wrinkled sack of flesh

the highest aspirations

the noblest goals

all the times i have risen to the occasion

and been left stinking

like a rose

it’s as if i had a radio, a television

and a computer jammed inside

my skull

and everything is playing full blast

every kind of crazy nonsense

but i know who i am

and i am none of that

i am not all those words spoken

in haste

from not having had enough sleep

i am more

i am made of sacred stuff
