This is a bad year for good poetry As stale words pop out stale sentiments sprout, The only consolation left to me Is that music hasn’t left me.
I pick up a pen With the urge to write But the wrist Is impaled By the blunt instrument. Lying limp, Like a fresh corpse Turning blue No ink runs out from that wound anymore. No words can be written with congealed blood.
In borrowed blue pajamas I sleep with hope tonight, For happy dreams unclouded sights That are neither blue Not borrowed.

These spaces between words, the gaps of meaning, So easily filled with assumed thoughts and feeling. One’s intentions may be pure, good and honourable, But another’s reading of it, Make it all changeable. In this malleable, twisted, vortex of words, are found the echoes of silent sighs and hurts.
Hovering in the air, Attached only by a whisper, Dangerous, precarious, Ready to collapse, Brittle emotions, Of an unknown love.
