Green Gold (Poem)

Green Gold by Joe Reid Kirby III

Burn the paper slow …

Watch it go …

From green,

To red,

To black & white,

After the glow …

On a one seat ride,

To beyond’s front row …

& you know …

You just know that you know …..

Every answer to your questions,

Understanding every meaning to a movie or song,

From the most terrible way he treated her,

To his preference in her favorite thong …

Is it wrong?

To be right …

Or to know when you’re being treated wrong?

Are my thoughts automatically higher than yours,

If my lips just kissed the bong?

Show me one person who doesn’t care about someone,

& I’ll show you why they’re a liar …

Because everyone cares about someone,

& that’s a step in the right direction for this web of a world,

Green gold … take me higher.
