i could have easily

been a monk
happy in my cell
simply reading & writing
with the occasional stroll

rather i'm acting
monk-like reading
watching tv without
speaking a word all day

[written today - 1:20 p.m. - while watching deadliest catch & clicking thru deep oakland]

thank you, ernesto. puts me in good company. i've always loved the hard consonants of the singer-songwriter's name.
