I ask, MAY I

I ask if I should ignore my existence

Like I do everyday, everywhere

Should I breath incessantly

The hopes of a commune

My life being the sarcasm of

A dismantled, lifeless mirror

Should I collect the morsels

of a scattered self

wonder if I have the courage

of being an indigenous spirit

My distilled dreams limp to caress

the wounded aspirations of a SELF

The aspirations of a boundless sea

A sea of words and of thoughts

Of a world that I do not entertain

Of an enigma I am too busy to be certain of

The strings of my name,

Strangle “me” till my poise succumbs

I ask, MAY I!
