A wild man (a poem)

i’m a wild man
with a jackleg
jukebox
in my head
playing
all the time
offbeat
on time

jams

looking for a
world
where I aint wild
where I aint two scratches
short of a skip
where I would be
on all yall’s
guestlists

for once

a world
for once
without chairs
or walls
or excuses
not to
dance
dance
dance

(Been a while since I’ve written a poem. Figured I’d throw one up to see how it was. Much harder than I remember. Gotta get back in practice! Lol. But this is how I’ve been feeling. We gotta start living this thing. All of us. DANCE DANCE DANCE…life is so short. Do what the hell you want.)
