I’m Not Better Than Anyone

I’m not better than anyone
I’m not clever-witted nor all that bright
Avoid owing the Company Store my 16 tons
Another martini before I extinguish the light
Life plays us how it decides to play
Insignificant input a mere formality
You’re sticking to your tried & true ways
While I’m dancing & bucking all of normality


Frantically Typing

Frantically typing

Finding that heroine

Flushing out details

Over vermouth & gin

Discovering her strong,

Smart & pretty as can be

Words forming reality

Thoughts allowing to her be free
