TRAPEZOID

Updated on July 29, 2012


In a puzzle of circles and squares.

I'm a trapezoid.

The Great Spirit is a rock,

That fills the void.

.

I wander, I seek.

Stand for the meek, the weak,

And now –

I can't even speak.

.

I try till I cry.

I stand till I'm bent.

I awake and dream,

Until I'm spent.

.

I don't plead,

For what I need.

Why in a garden of roses,

Am I merely stink-weed?

.

Can the rock continue,

To fill the void?

And will I eternally be,

The trapezoid?

.

TRADE

It’s a world of trade.

It’s all a charade.

Am I the epi-center?

In what currency am I paid?

.

Always smoke and mirrors.

Always the illusion.

Indulgence, seclusion,

Permeating confusion.

.

Wealth for health.

Friend for friends.

Criticize, ostracize,

Loose and bitter ends.

.

Turn a page. Turn a key.

Turn the wheel.

Turn you. Turn me.

Seal the deal.

..

~Micky Dee~
