poems by Rudolf Kurt Penner

My Batteries Have Run Dry

My batteries have run dry

altho I feel like doing something

I can’t ––

–– there is no energy whatsoever

Life has left me

Tired of all the bullshit

especially other people domineering

They get on top ––

I stay on the bottom

Life living in a pup tent

on the back of someone’s property

with a big house in the foreground

By my watch it is a quarter past 10

way past some people’s bedtime

and here we are ––

swinging from some suspension bridge

with a Daytimer in my hand
