Unknown authors,bleached bones,lost words and a thick accent?

I sometimes,
Hang out,
In second hand bookstores,
I like tings,
Used,worn,tattered and torn,
dey accept,
me second hand clothes,
me worn jeans
me weathered shoes
me old mans hat
And me young mans news,
For dey seas me
Inhaling words,
Writing poetry in me mind,
I am of this time?
I like da smell
Of old books,
I savor the words,
I snatch dem out of tin air,
As dey struggle
To escape me grasp,
After years of confinement
They entice me,
Unknown authors,
Lost to the world,
Yet known to me,
But still unknown,
For who am I
But a simple man,
With a pen and pad,
For the words of the lost,
As the setting sun
Ignites the clairvoyant sky,
I see ten thousand verses
Smoldering in my mind,
Ten thousand more,
Yet to be written,
For I am of this world?
I hide them within me bones,
me blood,me sweat,
me tears, tears, tears,
I shed dem freely,
As I curse da ink,
Flowing within MY veins,
To be bleached
In the salty
Summer sun,
For I too
Wander this world alone,
Without a home,
I am of this world?
And will forever be unknown………………….

    For I too
    Wander this world alone,

    It is tinged with words of your youth… an accent of the northern parts of your home… the ink is. You bring it to life with your reflections of your mind, and we don’t mind at all! Great writing Rocky… great writing!
