"Crippled"

Written By

or disabled

 

disabled makes me think of

shutting off a machine -

 

it's powerless,

 

dead in the water,

 

no juice getting to it -

 

a machine needs someone else

to disable it,

 

render it out of commission,

 

take away

its power source

 

is that what's happening to me?

Erik Tate is a huge fan of Allen Ginsberg and the Beat Generation poets and writers. He enjoys abstract photography, reading about quantum physics, gardening, and playing chess.
