Emancipation

cognoscenti













began with “kiss my butt cheeks
more an expression than demand
suggestive that having lowered
oneself so far makes it tolerable


in a sense knowing what it meant
makes you an adept although that
reflects poorly – you’re epitome
of the laissez cognoscenti


you’re free to joyously swing in
the avocado trees as and when
an urge becomes uncontainable
we would all enjoy that...
