I gave more attention
to words

but I could not
have an answer
when I did not
hear a question

That man was so loud
he could have been a horn

with his constant talking
and so often yelling
Oh hi
How are you
you soon came to believe
that loud mans heart
was as big as his voice

In the late 80's (you know last century) I went to a Dylan concert. He was so messed up he was weaving about and didn't even look like he wanted to be there. I was clean and sober.

So I wrote about it.

Being this ghost
of a former self
your notorious stare
is no longer
and your
well known words
are running together
in some directions
you did not
speak them

even so
there are
all of these friends
and they are glad
you are here
to say hello
to us all

Power amassed and power wielded often seem to be deliberated as simply as good if I agree and bad if I disagree. 
There should be another choice or two or three or even more.

and the "I's" have it

I know. I don't know. I know I don't know. I could. I should. I would. I could've. I should've. I would've. I couldn't. I shouldn't. I wouldn't. I think. I don't think. I believe. I don't believe. I know where I'm going. I know what I'm doing. I can take care of myself. I never lie. I am always right. I just don't know. I...
