Keep off the grass

Want to write, right?
not safe or boring
because that’s boring and safe,
let’s write about Love and the chain
that binds us to love and the pain,
we should write about poverty before
we write about riches,
honesty is the best policy unless your
policy is dishonesty
undress the shadows and dress them
in tomorrow’s cast offs.
If death is in the death in your pen
then pen that
the ink never falls flat
there’s always a meniscus.
grab a passing moment and dissect it,
correct it,
you cannot hide in
a multitude of sins,
or stay safe and write about wild flowers.
