Let’s Just Pitch It (Quickly, Quickly Now)

 

..

This poem is a brandied
belch, the un
quiet squelching
of song. It’s got a long

long way to go before
it can plow through all this
endless (s)now. It needs a
drink, a think

-in(k) cap, a quiet tap
on the shoulder from a
waiting noose,
a slap in the face from an
indelicate muse. It’s refuse
-ing to con

-form a single coherent
thought, caught in a web
of its own li(n)es.

It’s pining for trees
and breeze and indigo
sway, a moon to
swoon to, a slice of sky.

It’s stuffed
to the gills with un
-answered why, and no
where
……..(for).

Hand me that bag, there.
I’m ’bout to
turn it
into something breath
-less, bleeding.

and if it won’t fit in the
trash,

let’s burn it
……….(before reading.)

Took the weekend off to give my 3D world some TLC, including getting rid of some stuff. 😉
Catching up with Quickly, slowly.

    I took some time off to go to a wedding.
    …Still filling up another old suitcase to boot out.
    3D world – I like that. Yet I think we can imagine quite nicely the inklings of our friends 😉

    As for being ‘very trying’ I am…especially to those who believe behavior should conform to at least what they tell you, even if they themselves do not! 🙂

    “It needs a” = “It needs say”

    Brilliant:
    “drink, a think
    -in(k) cap, a quiet tap”

    “I’m about two” … Love it. 🙂

    I love this:
    “I’m ’bout to
    turn it
    into something breath
    -less, bleeding.”

    Me too.

    [Also, “getting rid of stuff” is the BEST feeling.]

    Ooooo…. caught in a web of it’s own li(n)es
    Another goodies from you.

  4. Oh man…I just LOVE the way you play!! This: “a slap in the face from an
    indelicate muse.” and the mention of “gills” I love those, too. Awesome, de!! 🙂
