Wanderlust

Wanderlust.
Pick up
and just
leave.

Depart, deny,
denounce, decry,
decide, devise.
Derail,
and just
leave.

Itch for something.
Go for gold.
Sing for loose
change,
Be sold.

Hold my hand,
and jump.
Don't wait for
the thump.

Free fall.
Stand tall,
and just,
leave.

Roses

I wear a monocle
It's tinted rose
Just the one eye.
One side of my nose.

I could get the other one
Then I could see
A world that was tinted
Completely.

But I'd rather not
And keep my feet here,
On the ground and firm.
Skip the fear.

A monocle is fine.
It's fair even.
A skewed vision is good.
A semblance of reason.

I'm swaying, agreed.
The guiles of a beautiful color.
But I hope the wind
Won't topple me over.

Hanging upside down on an electricity pole
His head, taking a toll.
