Be Bohemian

be bohemian, steven humphreys, poetry

You got Soul

when you

be Bohemian

join the



quit that stupid ass

day job

that demeans

your purpose!

reject the rules of this world!

become a young artist

get that no elbowroom apartment

find a friend to help pay rent, food, and beer

cut your hair

grow your hair

shave that beard

grow a beard

shave your head

get a tattoo on your forehead

cover your body with them

get an ear ring

nose ring

toe ring

belly button ring

live and let live

pull that hat down over your ears

love everything

when you hate the world

the world hates you

organic banana peels

to the learned sign ahead

that says
