WITH SACRIFICE AND HEART

I said my prayers
I rode the roads hard
til others broke my car
my bank account
but not my art
I wrangle feisty scared
from those silencing spirit hunger
With sacrifice and heart
I dance
staccato
amidst dishonors

Like the child
on a kitchen floor
I bang clang loud
despite the clutter
of egoes pompous
wanting me dead
quiet
so they can nap
ignore ugliness
around them
Step in the shit
with me please?
It’s fertilizer and fodder
Wimp and wail
bitch and moan
about the stench
We don’t get through days
on Earth without
messing in the mire

I’ve endured
days of attrition
Take away
car love and others
I’ll never be
anorexic
Come to my door
ring love out loud
Communion with heretics
makes us stronger
