Rebel With A Cause


I fight often
I strive for my choosing
I wear fabric cut against the grain

I live for the groaning
I breath in resistance
I exhale pain

I chew on my consciousness
I sip on attention
I grasp for my gain

I dance to no melody
I sleep to avoid dreaming
I listen to silence in the rain

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Your hands lie open in the long fresh grass, --
The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
