When the flowers don’t bloom

and the beauty isn’t there

life is always lost

trying to get somewhere

Why do people put themselves in fight or flight?

the bills have to be paid

“You forgot the insurance last month!”

“I know.”

“We could’ve died, what then?”

“Our lives would be sorted out.”

“Who does that?”

“the dirt, the rain, the wind, and the trees

maybe even an animal will chew on my skull.”

“That’s not acceptable!”

Nature has a plan

it’s not mine

it’s not yours

the most interesting men

are the ones nobody knows

until they’re dead

50 years or more

with profound evidence

of living

not bones,

but their insides

are there.
