RUMORS AND RANDOM DISCOVERIES

Folder: 
TROUBADOR'S CHOICE

 

I’m always hearing

about what’s going to happen

or I’m enlightened

as to the ‘why’

of some such occurrence

 

and everyone

is in the know

except for me

 

as everyone seems

to be privy to dirt

and has all sorts

of connections on the inside

with all the juicy gossip

 

I find myself

listening to a lot of shit

while everyone else

states their case

 

but I prefer

to make my discoveries

by accident

like dice thrown

in Mallarmean terms

 

no annulment forthcoming

just seek out the night

there’s friendly skies ahead

 

just chuckle at the voices

being heard

as various rumors

are shot off

 

and I find my way

thru the landscape

and the hidden meanings

that are implied

 

there’s always the chance

of something gone down

on any given day

 

and jaded or not

I still manage

to find and cherish

the occasional gem

 

and oblivious

to the noises around me

I learn to take it

for whatever it’s worth
