my name would become legend

 

                  “Come with me, Mama Goose!
                    I know where your baby is."
                          — Puss in Boots

 

the burden
of this palace
breaks me
 
roomafterroomafterroomafterroom
 
each step a bitter virtue
within success this hidden
responsibility
 
I lie awake
listening
to the fire
 
practiceeachbreatheachnodeachword
 
searching through that tumult
for the clarity of my diminishing
youth
 
someday
I’ll ditch these
palace steps
 
drunkonwinerecitingpoetry
 
this giddy
wish
to be king

  1. To what end do we desire glory?

    —It’s hard for impulsive people like myself to live up to this one. I would certainly shame my royal name. šŸ˜‰

    It’s nice to see you on the circuit, Angie. Caw! Caw!

  2. As always, I am fascinated by the variety of responses to a wordle. The same set of words produces such different responses. Nicely done.
