Working through the  227 Rules For Monks.

Who knew the simple life could be so complex.


this is not 

what I started

not what I expected

I didn’t ask for it

I don’t know how to stop it

no one does

yet I get blamed

from so many sides


sides that push me to be


for being born male

for being born white

for being gay queer nonconforming

if I don’t use

whatever entitlement I have

to advance the agendas

of those who fault me

I remain an enemy


it doesn’t matter

who burns me at the stake

they all have their legitimate reasons

who am I to complain

I’m getting what I deserved

not what I asked for

Hey! Now you can give me $$$ to defray blog fees & buy coffee on my trip to Cape Breton – sweet,eh? 

Like my pictures? I post lots on Tumblr
