an unbroken chain

Jan 17 2011 Published by under poetry

well,
he said
to no one
in particular,

Is it who
I am
that matters,
or what I say.

And why
should the record
of my thoughts
be subject
to the rigors
and whims
of someone else's
ideals

when the truth
at the heart
of all things
is the echo
in your head
that calls itself
Me

and the drum
in your chest
that beats to the rhythm
of an unbroken chain
that calls itself
Life.

And the only report
is the staccato of rain
on a tin roof
beneath which
we add
one more link.
