"you look like a man with a heavy heart"
heavy soul really
Van Zandt heavy
renegade country music heavy
can't lift my hood heavy
parking lot sad heavy
tears could spill heavy
considering meds heavy
minor chord heavy
tired monk heavy
follow up piece...poem...
Why are you tired? Why are you the tired monk?
tired of facades
tired of deconstruction
tired of shaving my monk tonsured head
tired of girding up for fights
tired of lies
tired of platitudes - pinned up on posters
tired of hollow virtue signals
tired of meetings, emails, emails about meetings
tired of these tattered robes
tired of being the only monk
tired of this heavy load
tired monk tired
Student enters the vice-principal's office.
He knocks on the door - three quick knocks.
Delivers his line: "Hey I'm tired of this fucking bullshit. (pause) I'm outta here."
Student runs off down the hall.
The VP pursues...a futile act.
The Student exits via the main doors, and hops on a downtown bus.
