Being Present and Away

Present Away

Silence invests in me
Doing nothing
Sets Inward free
Is a liberal education
Investing me into it
Or it in me

Invest in me|
I become original
Add to being
Rather than fitting
A brick in a wall
A dollar in a wallet

Liberal educated
For a library fee
When college classes aren’t
Making me more me


“How do you grow?”
