Speak to Those Who Know You – Written Monday 7th June 2021 (Aged 46)

Speak to Those Who Know You

why seek females to talk to
how strange,
i could call a male friend
one who understands my name
who would play similar games
who had lived my change

why seek females to talk to
with the soft comfort
and their delicious care
they way they pump up your ego –
with newly painted fresh air
what solution is that
it is neither boxed
nor is it flat
if it is advice i want and that i need
from friends who i speak to –
in which i believe

why seek female sunshine
it so quickly turns to night
come on,
use your intelligence –
and speak to those that know you
