7 by Stephen A. Dantes


I done did do chore
given more of youth
in years baked pride
like flipped patties
torched to delight
like light life lifted heavy
burden of journey strapped
like vests proof to bullet
on chest weak to regret
I walk long stretch road
dirt drawn drift dry dream
dead in closet with each
forward step back
in dust track I
track dust in
back step forward
each with closet in dead
dream dry drift drawn dirt
road stretch long walk I
regret to weak chest on
bullet to proof vests like
strapped journey of burden
heavy lifted life light like
delight to torched
patties flipped like
pride baked years in
youth of more given
chore do did done I
