Who Am I?

A mere presence of blood, bone and flesh,

Collecting restless moments of time and

Memories in a swirl of delusion and desire…

A damaged derelict recording with all the

Misspent nights of neon lights and wonder,

In Bacchus search of some nebulous Nirvana.

A casual fool of vacuous vector shaping images

Fraught with a dilettante’s dribble and dash

For a delectable dalliance in Delilah’s domain.

Who Am I?

A Mockery to the wise and worldly. A clown

Dressed in gaudy colors, shouting his foolery

To all who would listen in the Devil’s Den.

Who Am I?

Surely by now you must know me!

Who Am I?

Come, sweet damsel,

 join me in a drink,

 and I shall tell you all!


-Billy Ray Chitwood – August 12, 2019-

    Questions pursue us as we age. Who am I? We never knew, but now it matters to us, as memories fade and time becomes elusive. Beautiful, Billy Ray. ♥

    I hope if we’re given the lease of another eighty years, we’ll both discover who we are, Billy Ray. I, for one, though, wouldn’t have you change one whit of what you are now. You’ve gone through a lot and come out the other end ablaze with a passion for life–and the humor to see it for what it is as well as the wisdom to know you wouldn’t want to change it.
