Robert Johnson

start more stories 

than I can finish


love more women 

than I can sleep with


intentions misplaced 

plans mislaid

savings decimated 

faiths betrayed


I burn decades 

like paper


cutting out lives 

for later


I don’t claim to understand

what I’ve done it doesn’t matter


I guess I never thought 

I could hold onto something so elusive


so I spun the world 

without pursuing it


and it comes calling for me

like Robert Johnson


life happens 

and it happens again


most times 

not making sense


minds searching for patterns climbing

towards some kind of enlightenment


as time’s needles come down

on our heads

Good one Robert. “I burn decades like paper.” I can relate to that line!
