"Bare Feet On Linoleum"

[Stanza 1:]
Stay on your path Sylvia Plath
Don't fall away like all the others

[Stanza 2:]
Don't take all your secrets alone to your watery grave about
Lovers and -

[Stanza 3:]
The secrets you keep will keep you in deep like Amy and -
And brother
And all of the people you meet on the street will reiterate lies
That they uttered

[Stanza 4:]
Leave me in peace, I cry
In the middle of the night
On a slow boat bound for Catalina for no reason

[Stanza 5:]
Tiny drops of perspiration dot my forehead
Could be mistaken for dew drops if this were photo season

[Stanza 6:]
But alas this is a real life - and it's been a real fight just to
Stop my mind from committing treason
Why you ask?
Because she told the townspeople I was crazy, and the lies, they
Started to believe them

[Stanza 7:]
But anyways - that's all over now

[Stanza 8:]
I've moved on, gone scorched earth
And now I'm left wondering where to go from here
To Sonoma where the fires have just left?
South Dakota?

[Stanza 9:]
Would standing in front of Mount Rushmore feel like the Great
American homecoming I never had?

[Stanza 10:]
Would the magnitude of the scale of the sculptures take the place
Of the warm embrace I've never got

[Stanzza 11:]
Or should I just be here now
Bare feet on linoleum
Slicing vegetables onto water that I will later turn
Into stew

[Stanzza 12:]
People love my stories
People love visions
