No Fixed Address

 

This is of

no consequence,

like right of left

don’t make sense.

One is done,

the other wrong,

immaterial

as time goes on.

 

Never felt restricted

until I inflicted

their ideas upon myself.

Came up barely breathing.

Cannot shake this feeling

of drowning in a well.

The thing that sustains,

closes up above

and I am unable

to climb free.

 

That’s why I take great pains

to protect those I love,

and do what I can

to keep finding

my own way.

 

These parables

and obstacles,

meant to help,

meant to hinder.

So many misunderstand

that their first mistake

is to linger,

but never lift a finger.

 

Ideologies

are pathologies.

No regrets,

all apologies.

You think you know

the deal and the score,

but nothing’s real anymore.

 

That’s why I

keep moving on.

No fixed address;

see me and I’m gone.

Trying to escape

the coming dawn.

It’s gonna be a hot one.

Hopefully,

I’m wrong.
