Free Flow For Four

by David Maurice

I'll be the writer
You be the pumpkin

Blouses touch skin as a breath houses sin

I'd rather live like Zapata then die like Zapata

I'm be the kickstand forgotten
You be the rider


Author's Note: 4 minutes of my life.

Very cool rhythm.

I'm ok with being a pumpkin so long as i can sit and rot peacefully.

I know it's four separate snapshots, but it feels intensely layered. I do tend to take something that simply IS and complicate it, though. The point is that it speaks to me, and I hear the dissonance as well as the harmonies. Wait. I think I might have just done it again. Errrrrm.....I like it :))

P.S. I would like it very much if you ended up saying that it IS, infact, layered (because that would mean that I got the subtle theme running through the words - solved the hidden mystery). Of course, the best poetry does that for the reader, doesn't it - speaks to the reader in ways that sometimes has nothing at all to do with the orginal thoughts the writer was conveying?
