i once knew a man with
a beard like that.
he told me one day,
you want a future
not a flag draped coffin

and then he returned to his
usual state of confusion;
but for that moment of clarity,
i was convinced he was a ghost
who had appropriated the wrong body
in an effort to find his soul

perhaps it is his punishment
for some misdeed in his life
and his penance is paid by
proselytizing his painful
point to any who will listen;


Author's Note: i'll sort this out later. i know it's a mess.
