no place to crash


milk without honey
toast without jam
work without fridays
east without lamb

politics without money
jokes without laughs
me in the middle with
no place to crash

what good is verse
if it prompts no return
has unsolvable riddles and
spades to unlearn

nonsense to normsense
again and again
makes the absurd the
province of men

    Hello Amy,
    I found your piece to be thought provoking while light a whimsical. I enjoyed it. There are points that I don't really catch, as they come from your personal experiences, but that is fine too. I like the line " east without lamb" , but can only imagine the context. Anyway, thanks.
    Sam
