Lauryn’s Taxes – A Poem

Featured earlier this year on my Tumblr page, this poem is inspired by songstress Lauryn Hill:

An uncovering of self

divorced of commitment
broken down to the bones
we see
a life partially deconstructed
the sound dimmed
acapella disaster

Look, no, really
look
beyond the legislation of it all
see her fear
feel the chords ripped away
from her most precious melody
remember your most
vulnerable time
don’t pity
look
no, really
look
send love waves
then
heal yourself
pray
for the songbird
to sing again
but this time
free
no taxes
