Breaking Free

The witchdoctor said
I'm crazy, not a martyr.
She called my soul out,
saying it should shine
bright white with stranger laughter
making your steel crack,
your childhood shake all
apart - its shadow turn gray -
your diamond dim
and change to drab sand.
I'm not shackled, prisoner
to your freaky whim
any longer, sport.
Just toddle off. Find your seer.
Tell him your secret.

  1. There is an overwhelming sense of victory and personal power to this piece....I particularly like....
    "I'm not shackled, prisoner

  6. Toddle off to freedom, to find your seer. Break out. Make the steel crack. My reading at least.

  7. I think we all enjoyed toddle off...somehow more effective than a fuck off - shows much more self belief and control over your destiny

    1. Toddle off - exactly the sort of thing my old colleague Carroll F. Raaum might have said, actually did say in some context. I have books from his library distributed after his death from complications of a form of Parkinson's.. He left a hole in my heart.

The chicken crossed the road. That's poultry in motion.
