unencumbered

by jhon baker

this is for my friend Troy, heal fast my brother.

also an excerpt from my book…

@font-face { font-family: “Cambria”;}@font-face { font-family: “Garamond”;}p.MsoNormal, li.MsoNormal, div.MsoNormal { margin: 0in 0in 0.0001pt; font-size: 12pt; font-family: “Times New Roman”; }div.Section1 { page: Section1; }

unencumbered
I am unencumbered by two inches
            of my right leg
just as Jerry Garcia was unencumbered
            by a middle finger
and Indian Larry by his pinkie
I am unencumbered by thought or want
            from the single life of chasing
            the girls and boys around
not unlike how death rattles free
            our common concerns
