Mendicant

mendicant

I’ll beggar no one

for flowing words of praise

or validation through effusive flattery,

or pretty poetic posies left passively

on my portfolio.

Instead I’ll write,

my words carefully crafted

to mirror my motion-picture mind.

Perhaps you will be drawn to them

and will see my dreams.

It matters not;

for this is your illusion,

not mine.
