The Fabric of Life

by on September 1, 2011 :: 0 comments

I am a human parrot
repeating singsong
that was sung to me
in my birdcage crib
I am made of
made for mass
and therefore I am
part Mickey Mouse
part Dr. Pepper
with Abe Lincoln penny
thoughts which add up
to a pocket-full
of gently used ideals
and when it is all over
donate my
to Goodwill
and re-sell my
denim dreams
to those
willing to
slip into them
in the
changing rooms
of time
