diagnosis code r41.84…

now
i’m not saying
there’s
any truth
to this
but
when
i was young
the
old folks
talked about
being
born
with a veil
over
your eyes
meaning
you could
see
spirits
and such
but
i’ve
never
bought into
the
i see dead people
kind
of thought
but
i must admit
i did have
a few
things happen
that
well
rattled
my cage
but
being
an educated fellow
i knew that
any mental door
to
spirits
or
anything else
could be closed
employing
freud
or
some other
psychological guru’s
mumble-jumble
and
i could
become
like
everyone else
in
this nation
denying
the death
and
destruction
before me

  1. Yeah Freud was one man searching for enlightenment through the wrong means, the western way, and he ended up misleading many souls.
    We are born with a veil it’s true, but its completely different from those old ignorant men you heard saying.

  2. Charlie, I’d like to post this. Do I have your permission to post your poem and photo? With the link to here and an acknowledgment at the bootom of the poem that is by you, and what name should I use. Charles Martin?
    Also, would you kindly put the part that’s read on SoundCloud, it adds a lot hearing it read.
    Let me know, if all of that is acceptable to you; via email.
