Freedom, bring your hammock

FREEDOM, BRING YOUR HAMMOCK

Typing still hurts
yet somehow
typing heals

A says
Don Pablo is winning
every girl’s Heart ❤️❤️❤️
J says
Don Pablo is a chick-magnet 
M says
Hey, this guy can’t have
a bad bone in his body
If only you knew
of my shoulder and back pain
If only you knew
how bad my bones have been

Freedom
oh freedom
bring your hammock
bring your infinite legs
to rest awhile
All these finger-pricked hearts
falling like snow
from all directions
of the rosa dei venti
so thorny, and yet
so benevolently fragrant

Freedom
oh freedom
these travelling hearts
these words of friendly solace
I would trade them all
for a single late afternoon
reading 
on an island beach
with you
and you alone

Freedom
not liberation
Libertà
mhux ħelsien
Freedom
from the need
to liberate
or be liberated
Freedom
from the need
to be free
