Kicking Pebbles and Sweeping Sticks

There has never been a day when I desired to feed
that I have gone hungry
so I cannot speak to true starvation

I am a “fasting artist”

abstaining from an unhealthy chunk
of a degenerating culture

waiting for the winds to shift
and the sky to sigh

Though I’m not really an artist, either

I’m more of an observer
who might happen to set
a couple stones in their proper place
or plant a seed

by the time all’s said and done
