I Said

Osei Zion

I said

        "I will direct the winds to my side

         It blows down the valleys

         I won't lie on the carpet that eats my flesh

         to be hungry

         Before the last piece of my bone bends

         over backward"




         I failed and failed

         I fell and fell

         on the gallows of the natural world

                    Deep within, 


I said

        "I regret on my honor

         An illusion drawn on people just appear"


                    But today


         It digests in my soul

         Thunders of echoing cheers

         Set before me seasonal golden kennels

         Right in the midst of lighted candles, on 

         the tongue of my heart,

         cools the glucose
