$5.49

There has never been a
moment in human history
When life was not a dire
Struggle for survival.

Our lives circle the drain
Of extinction~we are
Barely aware of our
Existence~Barely aware of
How what I do on earth
Impacts everyone else.
Human thinking is so small.

I sit here in this Japanese
Steakhouse peering at a
Plate of teriyaki chicken
And rice~and think about
The forces that brought this
Meal to me for $5.49~
All my efforts could not
Produce this plate of food~
And I am thankful for all
The folks that made
My lunch a reality.

About ~Drew

I am a survivor of childhood torture. Each day, I put one foot in front of the other, moving forward. To do any less would spell my own destruction. My music/poetry/prose deal with the devastating effect of this kind of abuse on a human being: me. My experiences/thoughts/ideas/misconceptions are exposed here for all to see. Here. I am lain bare, naked, hidden only be the cloak of anonymity.
