NaPoMo Day 12

(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.
