A Study of Need
What is need?
Is it the halting stutter of a
uttering moist reactions to the
tyrant of his hungry belly?
Is it the jingling shake of the
the beggar's trashy rhythms
crying out from his duct-tape radio?
Is it the uneasy,
of the Machine-man in his hospital bed,
another's grisly surprise his great salvation?
It is that rough thread that binds us together,
so securely in our places, a marionette nation,
and yet it is the pinocchio drive to cut the strings.
