Editor I Need Some Help Here


I’m wanting some help with my poetry

I need to unburden my brain

It's giving me mental thrombosis

Imagine the state of my pain


Have you had a mind-clot of neurons

Who want to stop whirring around ?

I rely on their whirring-aroundness

To tell me they're perfectly sound


I think I'm expecting too much of

My neurons I want to rotate

I should let them do what they want to

And observe, then consider. Then dictate


So what do I mean ‘lots of help here’?

Am I on the right track with this poem?

Do I need to refine how I wrote it?

It's an idea that I'd like to see grown.


Don't take my draft as an end-product

A poet's domain sacrosanct

I'm willing to learn and verse better

Until my poem's finally franked

Like a 'Gluon' or a 'Quark'

It shines in other dimensions simultaneously

In a muli-verse of universes

Good one Don! My poems rarely feel "done".
