Inspiration, steps in veraison. Thoughts caught, thin
cessation. Incoming shark fin invasion.
Carbonic maceration; scar sonic, tax pervasion.
Selection, only hoped-for perfection. Noise
deadened, confidence lessened in lesson.
Approach the gray, note delayed; my throat,
concave. Sky low, on sleigh. Cage, behave on
stage; don’t speak true mind. I won’t leak
new finds. Repeat new lines from Cabernet’s
packaged ways. Grizzly bear, simply snared.
Impaired; why the poems I blared, after
glass 5. Tolerance, past mine. Hit by billy club
in silly pub. Heat seek missile, for 2 weeks speak
little. Self-control, fitting in a thimble. Never a
chemical industry extending it grips into me.
And no more coffee, it makes me write sore, sloppy.
Now and later, drown all fakers. Promise all
critics, artists artificial will fizzle. Of late,
my name is hiatus. Why wait? Just act. Move
4ward. Opposite of retract. Frustrated, time
eroding; Change my scene. The dust faded,
line is showing. Tame the dreams. Unconventional
leak. Escape, return never. New slate, soon burned,
fettered. Forced to write another letter. In words, hide my hide.
