Bury The Words

boat takes float
on blank space
to blank mind

vertical colors
become horizontal

and i’m losing
grip
without knots
in the rope

&where are the words?

 i’m losing
keys
&trains of thought

and i’m losing ambition
&celebrating it
like a much-needed rain

let me bury the words
— i’ve got a plan

to loose it all

for Poetic Asides  & NaPoWriMo

Well, we all knew this was coming…it’s the end.
Or in this case, it’s a poem with the end at
the beginning. It’s been fun everyone! Thanks
for putting up with my words every single day.
You can now bury them, respectfully, of course.

  1. [big smile] something tells me if you buried your words, a masterpiece would sprout in its place. You must be from California, as everyone else is way past “a much-needed rain.” As Groucho M. would say “Don’t say goodbye. Say Auf Wiedersehen!”

  2. steinbeckian, huh? I grew up near cannery row, cut my teeth on ‘of mice and men’, and recently re-read grapes of wrath for “fun”, because, well, who doesn’t find depression entertaining? a good pen, Angie, and congratulations on making it through. ~

    1. I recently rented Steinbeck’s old writing studio near Monterey (Pacific Grove) where he wrote Of Mice and Men and his puppy chewed up 3 months work of it! I watched the Grapes of Wrath on DVD because ya, who doesn’t like a depressing movie….ha. I read other gems while soaking in a sunken tub there too…his letters. Was in heaven.

      1. I grew up in PG. skateboarded (waaaaay back when) by there all the time. the peninsula has changed a lot; but then, what hasn’t? you rented the studio. that is very cool ~
