Frank James Ryan Jr...FjR (A Collection of Select Works... / The City That Never Sleeps)
W a n t -vs- N e e d...
Parallel to a stretch of band-width
you pray to soar with eagles-eye,
and so you do...
with confidence like a bull, running,
and blind to the myriad
of nascent consequences just ahead,
daring to penetrate the silent
and opaque with jejune mindset...'til-
your line is mysteriously severed,
and upon the breathless fall
you find yourself praying
to soar on eagles wings...
Yet, to no avail...and tragedy befinds you.
Ergo, the difference 'tween
' The Want and The Need'.
