Ecclesiastes

A poem

Nov 8 · 1 min read

Am I but once
Am I left for dead
strapped head to a bed
chasing after the wind’s howls?
strapped to a life unplanned
but a life always wanted
it’s a yellow wood-left goes right
right goes left
As above so below so they say
I zippered, then tore, now I’m here

Now I’m HERE

It was the right turn that got me
bitten by the whore
seven heads seven dead
O please seven dead

It was the right turn that got me
bitten by freedom
And now I wonder was it all done already
was I always left forgotten
So now, in this state
I’ve let my hair loose and wiggle my frame
What comes will come
even if it’s just a dream.
