Resting in Columbia

Let's keep it above board

don't always have to think deep

don't have to search for every reason

except why i lose sleep.

Let's keep it honest,

I really aim for sincere

even if ironic tones slip

like typing an ellipse and then I stare.

I don't even want it,

you can have it all back

take the fame and the fortune

take the artist acting tortured

pack it up, send it back.

The hair-do smooth

the attitude cool

it doesn't fit

I can't hack.

There's no question where to go,

I'm not at a crossroad, or an impasse

I'll stay here, where I'm needed,

at my home

where my mind can rest easy,

resting in Columbia.

Rest is good. Makes the rest not so hard. Love the poem, Mike.
