New Lightweight Hoodies. Great for laziness, business, or any other -ness.

Not a Toy!

I am not a
marionette
with strings
for you to pull
to twitch your fingers
to make me jerk
this way and that

I don’t have a key
in my back
for you to wind me up
to make me run
till my steam
runs out and
I stand still

I am not a
toy
I don’t play
your games
I don’t play
by your rules
I don’t play
to lose

You’re not the
conductor
puppet master
director
of MY life

I write
my own lines.
