Self Portrait #11 (after Marlene Dumas)
paper collage
1969 (at 17)
My only thought what
I was not. Uninvited.
Unrequited. But

Beautiful feeling
The Age of Aquarius
New day is coming

Then new voices gave
more choices: one of many
singing harmony.

What am I to do?
Time to sit down and wonder
Better get ready

Guitar and long hair
going where an opening
mind left fear behind.
