THE life I’ve always wanted

“In the end, the basic ingredients of existence never falter, whether you’re flying business or red-eye economy, or staying home.” Erin at outerNotes reflects on the lifestyle of a worldly jet-setter and wonders whether she’s “made it.”

Dear Lady Justice,

 

You are here without a summons.

Voices insist you be taken

 

upstairs to crowds waiting

to watch you, hear you proclaim

 

their imperative. Refuse, at last,

dirty from use, long stationed in rooms

 

of churning bile and duty shirked.

Move outside now free as spring’s robins.

 

Have nothing of these scripted circuses.

Search for space not up for auction

 

by men who claim you without scales,

without blindfold. Rip off that gown,

 

grey, tattered, and go among trees

thin as girls’ legs. See small waving

 

fronds, the hands of children who need you

to pick them up right now and run.
