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.
