one leg (baltimore style)

Post by saw » May 13th, 2019, 11:01 am

....................
I wanna balance

on one leg
zen flamingo cool
to prove I'm not
a doddering old fool

the flamingos are pink
especially in baltimore,
we have this love affair
with john waters

who once quipped
about our beloved town
it'a a bunch of weirdos
that think they're normal

paraphrasing a bit
but I'm not kidding
about standing on one leg
I think it would be colossal

Good for me,
in that way that
cannot be defined....
.........like baltimore

I wanna conquer equilibrium
...................................

Balance is a funny and elusive thing, it seems.

I smiled after reading this. Hit the right notes.
