Times of neo-conventional bohemian
Insouciance…followers wear illusory
Utopian philosophy that nothing
Should ever be clinched too tightly—
Not apparel, morals, long-borne beliefs, nor
Tie-dyed relationships as whims should fancy,
Varied and colorful as tropical birds.
They leave their scent trails everywhere…
Jasmine, musk, nouveau-health’s cuisine;
Fresh nascence of what they warrant is
True-original…as it ripens to sweetish-sick
Incense of dying…strains of song
Lingering from broken cassettes.
The old guard, how they lecture, chide;
Preach from self-ordained pulpits of
Polished pride—against frangible
Culture doomed to topple; as if any—
Bizarre beaded or buttoned down;
Mere men with, without, recorded
Merit—will somehow get out of
Self’s destruction alive.
