COLLAR FULL OF THORNS

Photo taken by D K T at Cuyahoga Valley National Park

Opportunities are right outside my door. I ignore them when I try to create my own.

nothing on my calendar to offer up as an excuse

no illusion or confusion i got everything to lose

couple hours i been at the desk

what did i produce

did i crest

or get chewed

kinda young and even more naive about the way to move

call it cute i claim immunity to darkening the hue

i’ll get through to you to make a pledge

but i’m so obtuse

might get swept

like a fluke

threaded like a sweater with a collar full of thorns

every time i move i feel constricted by the pressure to conform

to ideas telling me to keep the norm

identity ripping hate on anything i’ve worn

never too reflective when i look at what’s in store

inventory weapons ammunition and explosives i’m at war

with an image of a barren desert storm

everybody fighting for the power to enforce
