LICKING SALT OFF THE WALLS

Folder: 
TROUBADOR'S CHOICE

 

 

And I’m thinking

“Hey, fucking Goethe

can write a tribute

for the Polish salt miners. . .”

 

and yet somehow

I doubt any salt sculptures

of me 

will be erected.

 

I doubt I’ll

get any recognition

at all.

 

Face it, fucking Goethe

was fucking Goethe

and like it or not

I can lick all the salt 

off the wall that I want.

 

I still won’t get

my just desserts.     

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 

 

Author's Notes/Comments: 

written after going down in the salt Weiliczka Saltmines outside of Krakow, Poland.  There is a salt statue of Goethe there in honor of poetry he wrote about the salt mine.  This trip was in 2006.
