Free Verse Friday

Friday night with the air conditioner
I can’t give you want you need
You can’t give me what I want

And I’m starting to use the cane indoors
Thinking about managed care
Too independent  to ask

I am comfortable, compared to most
It’s not enough for my soul
To be paid now for past work

Freedom’s just another word for nothing
But it’s better than a debt
Or a man sucking you dry
