A complaint

Updated on October 16, 2013

It’s time, I think–
Bathroom. coffee, pedal,
Work,home,sex How ravishing,
This modus operandi ! Why
Would I ever live up to this norm,
And be under the yoke of its dictations
When I could just be purely myself,free from shackles?
It’s so much easier
To peel down my clothes,
Walk down streets with no masks,
Divorce my wife,send kids to foster care
And burn my stinky urban dig with which my tiny income I can not afford .
It’s so much easier
To kick over the traces
And return to the wildrenss.

      I believe that is an instinctual desire. I can only imagine walking around in the woods with a TV dinner in my hands wondering where the microwave is?

      As we grow older (I mean after your 20s) it becomes clear that we have little control over or situation or surroundings. Thus it is a time-honored tradition to lament our present condition and dream of a different reality. And so you have followed the well-worn path but in your case with style and grace . . .

      Yes, I've thought the same thing about all but the kids, I want them with me. To live simple and not a slave to the rest of the world. What a dream!

      I love the top picture. Haha!
