the courage to be oneself

the coffee mug stands erect on the floor
and take note of that shoe under the stool

and my books lying everywhere –

check this hard-bound copy of Rainer’s poems
lying wide open like thighs on the couch

and those dirty dishes in the sink
am sure they have now found
companion of cockroaches

and I, and I feel content
to be when I can be –

without restrictions or rules,

freedom freedom freedom –
