...The male ego, a complex - yet splendid thing...

All these men.
I see their faces,
in these crowded streets.

As if fallen birds -
their hearts like broken bone,
disfigured and mis-shapen.

Egos are like feathers
concealing the transparent flesh,
which hides the confusion within.

Away from the roughnecks,
jobs keep them civilized.

Once the whistle blows,
Find them clocking out.

from under their bosses'
or fathers' thumbs.

They watch the liquor poured,
throwing caution to the wind.

Their debts and duties---
as if the foaming head
of a lager,
--- to be blown off,
'till morning comes.

Men. I am told I am one. I sure don't feel like one. Yet I guess I am. You did a good thing here once again, Amber. Love and peace to you. Regis

This is very good. I never had the chance to read the first post. Thanks for reposting it under your account. I like the idea of all of the civilized repression that you talk about. It's amazing how that temporarily goes away 'till morning comes.
