Tales from the bucket

Constant

 

I am a man in constant sorrow

constant worry

constant strife

I am constantly opposing every constant in my life

there are times when I am happy

I have even raised a smile

but that is just a consequence

of a constant

in denial

    A-Muse

 

Mostly I sit and amuse myself by

continuously pressing the self destruct button

I do this in the v...

Tales from the bucket

When the steam clears

 

There’s a proper sound

something real

a “Clunk”

a proper chunk of past

proper steel to steel

wheel to wheel

a “Thunk”

something you can feel

 

I Thunk!

heel to heel

steel to steel

It suits me

 

they are my rails

my parallel tracks

in them

I feel secure

No one

          No one but me

 

I’m not what I was

nor wanted to be

not happy not sad

not bandaged not free

not one in a million

not one of the crowd

not quiet

not silent

nor particularly loud

 

I’m not one of them

and I’m not one of those

I’m not into fashion

but I do wear their clothes

my looks are quite normal

for those who can see

though shorter ...
