GO COUNT ME IN

May 1, 2012

“Are your angels just children laughing  insane At the fools we are as men?  Go count me in.”
………           RYAN ADAMS –  from  “THE FOOLS WE ARE AS MEN”

I work hard/ To understand/

But then I don’t know much about it all/

Someone at my night job/

Was all about  this bible’s myth of Jacob/

One where he wrestles an Angel (or maybe More)/

I’m not sure why or what

transcending,  intended

glimmer  &  glow

One   was  to get  here

 

But I got puzzled  at the wrestle.

If there are angels,  I need them

To lead me to bed,

A warm  arm/wing  around me,

Mercifully,  off to our bed.
