The most redoubtable Xandal (x&al) Danzabel lives in London, en route from Gozo to The World. More from Xandal soon.

I AM FREE

I am not a mainstream person
I dont think like u out there
Mind u – i am not against u
I need ur background
To know and enjoy where i differ
I am clever enough though
To fit in where i need to
I have found myniche
Mybodyhome = OLDAGEPALACE
I live rentfree in the wing dubbed HUMOR
Myoldagebody moves home sites easily
Anchoring here and there and everywhere
I dont linger as yet
I dont have to live in haste anymore
I feed on beauty
Which is so available a commodity
Using myperfectly trained
Ears or eyes or nose or mouth or skin or brains
Without u even noticing myintrinsic delights
Myweak spot though is mypoetic license
Leaving hints for the chosen few
On the rough road to wisdom
Now and then we meet in crossroads
Then maybe i linger and share
The quality i polish to gleaming
= nomad spirit of joy


i am free

u know
