freestyle sonnet #097: THE NEED TO DISENGAGE FROM MUNDANE WORLD


Establishment of the mundane as the right path 
of responsible actions is the final lock 
on shackles that stifle free movement. Devil math 
calculates equi-facts so that human livestock 

feel as though progress through pre-designed pens is made, 
as if there was purpose or point to this stumbling 
waste of precious moments. My beard now deeply greyed 
by accumulated days, missing that rumbling 

stomach of youth, hungry for something real, not more 
distractions to help the daze be gazed away while 
dreams are razed, chasing c.r.e.a.m.'s siren song deceits for 
another hour, day, month, year... a lifelong beguile.

This internal jihad between dirtgod and white 
devil leaves me lost some days too far gone from right.
