and threads from woolen balls mama used to knit

always keep with you a warm thought

and whether the summer will approach

you’ll care not

to one who has met with many meliorists

who are also unfortunately not activists

the human interest in an indispensable aspect

 

so success for artists

is determined by the masses they influence

depending on latter’s concerns, as much as the former’s contradictions

a good job

should provide one the food

and necessities for a comfortable living

and must never rob

one of their sense of being

I’ve loved many times
in different ways

few lasting a while, if not part of a life
yet many more… felt like just days
