Wearing the same tattered clothes,

And clean my worn out skin
And clear my space of thrown out dreams
And rusted needles still dripping
With last night’s cheap thrill.

AM I YOUR RICH YOUNG RULER?

by thereluctantpoet

By Charles Robert Lindholm

The rich young ruler
had asked Jesus,
“What must I do to be saved?”
and after every thing
Jesus told him
he answered, “I have done that”

Wet sand crunches and shifts beneath my weight

Accompanied by the waves and shore birds
