Same Planet Different Worlds

Putting My Feet In The Dirt Prompt  #1Moon scraped knuckles and knocking knees

Pablo Picasso – Girl with a Mandolin

Parts of me that still work

my legs, my arms, my fingers

I have to bribe them on some mornings with drugs

to do their jobs


My face, my eyes, my crooked jaw

not good for much

except for maybe nobody spends much time

looking at me to closely


My voice, my brain, my heart

sit in their cages of bone

and ride around without a care in the world

for me or anybody else.
