On a silver platter



On a silver platter

Too much time to think
in the light of day
as I beg for another sunset
and the mercy of night
riding its glorious coattails
so I can watch the stars
burn like embers
and for the moment not feel
like there is something more
I can do like I do
when the sun is burning bright

I have exhausted every life line
in the day time
in a city where no
is the natural response
to any question

In a city where love
is a foreign language
I never learned in high school
because I was white,
middle classed and American
so my bootstraps were made of steel

I had time
because it was supposed to be
handed to me
because I work hard
and it is my God given right

Manifest destiny you know

But in this economy
love is another business deal
where only the rich keep their heads
above water

And that is two more things
I do not have
if you are counting

I know I am
I found out I cannot even have sex
without a credit card
because their lives
are as fecal as mine
and I am a mirror

I remind them I cannot give them
what they do not already have
because I only have sincerity,
honesty and an open heart
and the foregone conclusion
is they cannot dream with me
because reality is crushing us together

And the fantasy
is wealth will rescue her
if only for a few hours
but the truth
is poverty will love her forever
and give her what heart says it wants
and when her heart has it
her heart does not want it
anymore
