I write in black and white
My words are what I write
They come from the south
They come on their own power

Without attachment
Without shame
Without expectation
Without excuse

I write in black and white
My words are what I write
They come from the north
They come on their own power

Without intrigue
Withut spellcheck
Without money for you
Without a name

I write in black and white
My words are what I write
They come from the west
They come on their own power

Without commercials
Without victory
Without sex appeal
Without drugs for you

I write in black and white
My words are what I write
They come from the east
They come on their own power

Without cost
Without a bill
Without debt
Without introduction

I write in black and white
My words are what I write
They come from within
They come on their own power

Without proof
Without passport
Without backup
Without taste

I write in black and white
My words are what I write
They come from nowhere
They come on their own power

Without gender
Without insomnia
Without credit
Without work

I write in black and white
My words are what I write
They come as they are summoned
They come on their own power

Without credentials
Without authority
Without a gift
Without indifference

I write in black and white
My words are what I write
They come without a vote
They come on their own power

Without a desert island
Without friends
Without loneliness
Without enemies
