Forsake The Illlegible.

Updated on April 17, 2010

 Forsake the illegible


Rip the paper
overturn the desk
burn rubber
cross your lead works
with erasers
slam off buttons
delete, delete, delete.
run the uni-ball
into the hand
that holds it
bleed, and let it drip
maybe pain, and
your own suffering
will release
expressions lacking
talents in comas
move no one
walk, no run away
with kicking,
and loud screaming
make straitjackets
your next option
wire shut your jaw
throw bricks
into the monitor
bang your head
all walls are welcome
burn every
scribbling rendered
deny it's frail existence
abandon any rewrite
as wallpaper
in an outhouse
serves to hide
all but the smell
label nothing
with your ego
as experimental
take hiatus
find your center
but dare not
to be so crass
or so blinded
as to author
words so useless
that they waste the
space they occupy
like clutter
at flea markets
that sit dusty
and unsold
for the act of
writing babble
is infectious
it invades
the work you'll
sweat over
in vain
long after you have
one printed page
with utter nonsense
left to fester
through the ages
leave it be.

      Very nice I sometimes wonder of my scribblings are babble. But you are right it is infectious. Cheers.
