Flowers 4

By Marvin L. Dorsey
inspired by my niece Gabrielle

Bouta cut loose
like a 5.0 Mustang
let it ride
dropped to the ground
wide open

Bouta blow my own damn mind
turning on a light
letting the whole world
see it shine

Bouta stand up
tired of people sitting on my ass
drawing a line
not one more chance
do they get

Bouta take a step
show em where I’m really at
not this or that
Just the rat a tat tat
of a homemade drum

Bouta relax
take a deep breath
while I still have some left

Bouta let my shoulder lean

For a minute
