free by Anthony AW

it’s music flooding room

it’s paint on wall

it’s tension; art hung

is free for me


it’s paint on walls

downtown to see museum

art’s free for me.

think, thoughts are free!


down on the ground

on a floor pillow

thinking thoughts make money

poetry pay for me


on a floor pillow

listening to music flood

poetry pay for me

it is tension; art
