You say I O.K.ed


O.K.ed it when?

My goodness, Central

That was then!

I'm mad and disgusted

With that Negro now.

I don't pay no REVERSED

CHARGES nohow.

You say, I will pay it--

Else you'll take out my phone?

You better let

My phone alone.

I didn't ask him

To telephone me.

Roscoe knows darn well


Ain't free.

If I ever catch him,

Lawd, have pity!

Calling me up

From Kansas City.

Just to say he loves me!

I knowed that was so.

Why didn't he tell me some'n

I don't know?

For instance, what can

Them other girls do

That Alberta K. Johnson

Can't do--and more, too?

What's that, Central?

You say you don't care

Nothing about my

Private affair?

Well, even less about your

PHONE BILL, does I care!

Un-humm-m! . . . Yes!

You say I gave my O.K.?

Well, that O.K. you may keep--

But I sure ain't gonna pay!

What may be the worst danceCould be the best waltz,For the veil of the senses was lifetd.As the musical shattering of glassBecomes a window to the soul,The barrier between life and death was broken.More from the free, the unsung and confused,More life was gained than lost,An endless plummet into the unknownCould be the savior,Of all that has come and gone.Gravel embedded in skin -Could be the cold water,Splashed upon listless blood,Courage sifts through ashes.

It might be interesting to grab some chalk and write your poem in big letrets in a public place, like a park or a place that gets a lot of foot traffic. You could even draw (or have someone draw) pictures of the poem's subject, an interesting border, or arrows/footprints from farther away leading to where your poem is written. x x
