Lyric riddles

Unsung laments

Underbreath rages

Sinister hymns of a dead religion

Midnight graphite retchings

Footprints of sleepwalkings

Ravings of fragment souls

Script scraps

Hearsay of the unconscious

Lisping tirades

Just a twitch

Scratched skin after itch

A spilling

A secret

A letter never sent

A scrapbook

A lazy journal

A mnemonic

A knot in a hankie

A cut and paste compound

A stick stuck in a catpissed thesaural sandbox

A potato print of some other Venus

A beating around- grasping for grammar


Anything but a poem

And call myself a poet
