Flowetry In Motion

These words seep out of the thin midnight and early morning cracks of time in my life. Every day these words release me. Hopefully they do something exciting for you as well.

Hacksaw Man

Arrest him!
He's insane, criminally
insane!
Made an A-Bomb
pop rocks
gestures and mumbles
to personal realities
so lock him up
lock her up
lock it up
non sterile mirrors are
too bright.

Either you're locked up
or you're locking up
keeping bars erect
but never ejaculating or
elaborating.

We're all insane
locked up
and all the keys are
buried in a
disposal site
somewhere back east.

I'm the hacksaw man
your soft soul cushion
with teeth.

Janitor in the corner
with a saw called
laughter
the solvent of
freedom.

Show me your cell
we'll dig for release.

Your format rings a bell for me...Here are some Proverbs that follow the same format:

Better a meal of vegetables where there is love than a fattened calf with hatred.

Better a little with righteousness than much gain with injustice.

Better to be lowly in spirit and among the oppressed than to share plunder with the proud.

Better a dry crust with peace and quiet than a house full of feasting, with strife.

Better to live on a corner of the roof than share a house with a quarrelsome wife.
