Back Next Axe Pickings

The mind chops down
Axe picking nicks
On the brain
Kicking up
Chemical chaos.
What's the sense in staying alone
In such combat
When I can settle down
Make love,
Swim in the midst of a painting
Listen to other axes picking nicks
Onto the brain.
Work... matter needs to be re-juggled
In order to sit comfortably in matter!

Irwin R. Shaw - 1981
