TPF / FRAGMENT {9 of 12} -- by BOKE

{TPF_9_01} I STILL MISS GREENWICH VILLAGE, but the work

{TPF_9_02} that made that cobble-stoned street home took life

{TPF_9_03} I had more uses for -- Each time I'd jerk

{TPF_9_04} out to the airport Sundays -- like a wife . . .

 
{TPF_9_05} . . . I had avoided getting -- Freedom's great!

{TPF_9_06} But freedom of the city must be bought ...

{TPF_9_07} unless a richer grandpa was your fate ...

{TPF_9_08} or some kind-foolish rich-gal can be caught . . .

 
{TPF_9_09} . . . whose father wants an artist for his girl.

{TPF_9_10} If these lines seem conflicted, say AMEN.

{TPF_9_11} The pull of compromise makes artists whirl

{TPF_9_12} in silly little circles -- Just say when . . .

 
{TPF_9_13} . . . to stop -- Give up your dreams and blow away.

{TPF_9_14} Another crop of artists grew today.
