i like my brain unemployed

May 29, 2017

(With apologies to e e  cummings)

i like my brain when it is unem

ployed. It is so quite a new thing.

Muscles unclenched and nerves calm.

unemployment. i like what it does,

i like its whats. i like to feel curiosity

pull my mind in directions it chooses

unfettered by needs not my own

de foris, from outside, against which i will

again and again and again

chafe, i chafe on corporate culture,

i like the quiet oasis of home, books, articles

and the wonderful terror of the blank page

with pen or cursor hovering… poised

and possibly i like the thrill

of authoring the story of myself
