Poem - Unplugged

I stopped watching the news
reading the newspaper
listening to the radio

It was too hard, plus
my culture was out to get me
or drive me crazy with lust
or worry

And I don't condemn my
surroundings and I don't condemn
lust or worry nor my

I don't have to pay attention
if I don't want to


I can actually see my surroundings
and know what time of the day it is now


Now, often when people speak
their words sound like poetry
