safe boring life
afraid taking risks
man without a dream

life lost in books
avoiding real experiences
safer to pretend

dark shadows exploding
electric monofilament hum
goddamn rainbow madness

today’s dark scribblings
covering blank page
tomorrow’s rorschach mysteries

ex-wife an actress
living moment to moment
playing life by ear
