(xii the hanged man)
like hamlet: unable to make a decision. real tree or
mossy oak? he eats oatmeal for his health & for no
other reason. standing by the table. he announces:
children are but evil possums. to be or not to be.
that is not the question. the question is where did i
put my bag. oh … but to see the quality of life & the
nobility of spirit. my seed is tainted. my need does not
deserved naming & yet i hang like odin: unable to
die & unable to love. someday i will know the answer.
