not so free…

gave me this bottle of lavender oil…said if i wiped it on my feet it’d help me sleep…’ats. what she said…called Nature’s Kiss…has some kinda’ healing powers…smells nice…real fragrant…says on the bottle not to apply to the skin undiluted…too powerful on it’s own…too much of a good thing …

burned this bag of sage…said it was legal marijuana…lit it on fire and smelled up the room real good…came in this big ol’ tightly wound bunch…she’d let it burn all night long while we made love on the floor like two spirits that longed for each other…lookin’ for one another for years… centuries…

had pictures on her walls of dogs…wolves…said inna’ ‘nother life she was a shape-shifter…could turn into anything at the drop of a hat…whatever the spirits allowed…

told her my spirits wanted to run free…all over the place…one day wake-up in Vermont and the next on some beach in Carolina…said we’d make a fine couple of Gypsies…just travelin’ everywhere…makin’ love on the earth…layin’ in the grass with flowers ’round us…real genuine love…said she’d think ’bout it…said she’d think ’bout it…

but she began talkin’ ’bout car payments and house payments and credit cards and debts and credit ratings and credit scores and what would we do for money and how america does that to ya’…the land of the not so free…we’re not so free…

From the minute you’re born you owe somebody in this country…grow up owin’ everybody…, she said…Can’t run from it forever…,laughed,…It’ll catch ya’…it’ll catch ya’…

guess she’s right…we’re not so free…
