Ma Ha Gony Nicotine

roger peter look and see
we all become masters of survival
some more dishonest honest or druthers
be kind to yourself
in any disparagement
half is yours half is mine theirs
everyone loves a teddy bear
(be leery of proprietorship
it is only comely in little children
and they
only step on your toes,
the big children go for the heart)
“the life unexamined
is not worth living”
my beloved
Mother of the Night and Day
are your best friends
paraphernalia manipulation creation
is only loopingly plausible
little big horn is aplenty
stars are born and die
the burden onerous
our personal past is our guide to future
stations a time of down
by the old mill stream
o the joy
to awake to the smell
of heavenly bread!
