Poem: living fate – 16/11/21

greedily I take that Fate
wash me down take selection of late
admiringly I grin, accepting the moment
just that while
this is a date

I take his hand he offers me
I feel less alone but I don’t need
another to adore me
but commonplace these emotions be?
I just need the ability to continue to breathe
without any nuances or heaving consumptives
my chest is burning from exertion
much intrepid condemnation
and what I must say is that I am
aware enough for all of them,
caught off guard will I never be
gullibility and naivety
no no no
it’s hard to break well-worn habits
but this is the way it must be
my friends, my dearests, what is it that compels me
what is it that draws me
to complicate the procedure of Life?
Surely there is no need:
to live simply and happily is the aim
it is enough


I am we are it is enough the way we are/am,
slash this need for conformity and accept
the wholeness of Fate,
strength within, outwardly cheeky expression,
I am living living living
so joyous, no need for rubbish.
Complications can stay out of
my life.
