The Day’s Thoughts (71/365)

Hope and love or hot rod?
LSD and Woodstock
Laissez-faire or state-run
Please, can I have some?

When you die, why would you
Think you’re coming back here?
Speed of light, speed of soul
Other Earths to choose from

Decorate these plain old shells
Paint and plump and groom them
Get a tattoo, piercing, brand
Powder, shine, and tune them

Love and mercy, trust and faith
Things that don’t come easy
Remind yourself every day
Of who you want to be
