Dreaming of Maya Angelou Empty Dreaming of Maya Angelou

Post  mikeschultz on Thu May 30 2013, 20:13

He appears relaxed, yet perplexed,
With his scowl and pursed lips,
Searching for some understanding
Of why the caged bird sings.

He’s done the chicken-shat shuffle,
Scratching fire from his soul –
Old soft shoe, rhythm and blues,
Easy and soulful tunes.

Right or Wrong, or Indifferent,
With no clue, not one hint –
Can hens crow when no rooster will
Or sing as Whippoorwills?

He curls up in his cardboard home
And dreams of Maya Angelou.
