The Fifty Cent Tour

mute swan hiss


there are times
you must take yourself
firmly
by the hand
and remind yourself
that while
your arms
bear a striking resemblance
to a dancer's
the legs
are what matter, here

dream, yes
but with wings
tucked
don't let
your heart get caught
in a fools net
my dear

  4. Sometimes you have to dream with your wings spread. Just for the hell of it.

    Cheers,
