Shakespeare's Orphans

We all have thoughts

They're in our heads

During the day or when

We take to our beds

 

But where do thoughts go

When we're brown bread?

Do they expire when we do

Or emigrate instead?

 

Do orphaned thoughts stray

Seeking a new home?

Is the air alive with ideas?

Does a corps of notions roam?

 

And is that where poetry begins?

Idling like taxis, do rhym...

Flame

Flame

 

We set the world alight

With incendiary thoughts

That burned like sulphur

Cut with lithium

A million candles

That lit every corner

Of our flammable minds

And shone like supernovas

 

That was an age ago

When new ideas

Were like matches

Striking on sandpaper

When the faintest

Flintlock spark

Could flash against powder

And deliver shot

Ideas

Out Loud

entry picture

 

 

Let your voice be heard 
Surely you earn and win
Let ideas more cleared 
For all women and men 

 

Tell me what do you think 
How did you see yourself? 
Freely talk, no blink 
Why to keep it on shelf 

 

Open mind and heart 
Nobody is remaining fool
Surely you're smart 
To become happy and cool

Writers Block

The words don't flow as they used to

The lines don't form as well

My mind seems stuck in idle

Awaiting thoughts to swell

Each day I live, I see so much

It should inspire something

Yet when I sit to write it out

My brain comes up with nothing

Janus

Janus

 

When we were young

we raged against the storm

biting at our hormones,

engulfing our senses

and our sensibilities.

 

The deep penetrating

oxblood on our

Doctor Martin boots

polished

to an indignant sheen.

 

Pre-conditioner hair,

split ends and acne,

Shredded Wheat moustache.

A groove worn on the chin

by pondering fingers.

 

Myopic ...
