Catastrophic Write

Vintage Words


I wrote a poem

postulating the end

of the familiar.


I wish I had not

written the poem

because every time

I read it, I think,

this is a possible



From such meanderings

I discover this poem is what

I use to use to measure

real time.


At such times my

pulse is a finger pointed

at the unfamiliar.

A bold rendition of primitive

A bold rendition of primitive man in a state of panic. Bold...and I love the word 'meanderings'. One of those words I keep on my 'favorites list', although I have never actually used it in a poem, and maybe once in real life...if ever. Always a joy to read your work.

...and he asked her, "do you write poetry? Because I feel as if I am the ink that flows from your quill."

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "

Now you gotta write the poem entitled "Meanderings" to take that puppy out for a spin. Like aged wine, a word can develop all kind of great flavors on a shelf if kept at the right temperature. incredibly glad you enjoyed the write ~~A~~
