Writers Surprise



The flesh eating words are being written

As we read.

And it’s those cold fingers that keep it going

Here we can do without the warm sun

There we can not go one day without the

Grip of our shiny little pen’s of sympathy.

It’s pretty it’s like a dying flower blooming

And a bloody army singing viciously

But their uniforms need pressed.

Do you have your hateful iron honey?

Do you have time to put on that black dress?

Are we ready to go?

It reminds of times of to much wine

Causing begging to mumble strongly

O how do we drink through the ear?

Ahh, yes, sometimes we must write, mustn't we. Even on beautiful sunny days or when friends call, it just has to be finished first.

"O how do we drink through the ear?" Sounds like a drinking problem! Thank you Awful Poet!

sometimes me think its all noise, just noise! then, the mist clears and I can use my eyes to drink the sight of what my ears do drink, at times to avoid, at times to not be annoyed. Is worth the time given to think? Or is it taken? Then I notice my portal is waiting! I love visiting your portal. ~aloha nui~
