Seven Times #85: All


 

petroleum jelly for the soul
deodorant for the heart
eye glasses for the mind’s eye
hearing aids for the ego
trumpets for the voices inside my head
shoe horn for the mea culpa
rubber gloves for the dreams
ash trays for the intuition
chiropractors for the ambition
all in all, it’s all we got
