The following poem was written on June 8, 2021 and appears in my personal poetry book for April-June 2021, “Out of the Dark.” Enjoy – BB
Cut right through
Wiping out all the inner goo
Clinging on to old sentimentalities
Don’t let me stay here too long, boo
I’ll go into one of my other personalities
I’m getting rid of the shit
Going through up and down and over it
Throwing out what doesn’t fit
And I don’t care on single bit
Who gets in my way
They’ll regret doing that today
That’s for sure, I don’t want you to see me
When I fall to pieces, seemingly
I’m cutting out the fat
So get ready for that
And I’m chopping it all to the floor
So I can start over now I’m much more mature.

The photo was taken by me at the State Fair of Texas in 2017. The State Fair of Texas features a series of statues scattered around pavilions within the front of the park, which are extremely old and art deco-ey, which I love!
