It is my firmly held belief
That only boring people
Have the capacity to lead a boring life.
Cut from a different mold than I,
I should think.
I will be as free as an airplane!
Or a subway car!
Or as an actor.
Free! Free! Free to live where I please
And think what I please.
These things are very important to me.
As are my books
And hats and scarves
And mittens and boots and coats.
Clothes for the summer months too.
For when I return.
Like an airplane,
Or a subway car.
Or a goose,
Coming home to find a quick fix.
Before he leaves again,
When autumn blows in,
This time, for good.
