Sometimes Nothing Makes Sense - a Poem About Rambling
Rambling Poem - from "The A.M. Poems"
Many years ago, when I was going through some rough times, or my young, questioning mind just couldn’t sleep, I would write into the wee hours of the mornings. I had a whole spiral notebook of these creations that I called, “The A.M. Poems.” Some of my poetry was full of ramblings, a tired brain trying to make sense of all the madness and sadness in the world. Some of the nonsense almost made some sense. Perhaps this is one of them.
Nothing Makes Sense
and my words get all twisted
like a fly in a web
or cluttered like a desk
or sounding all wrong
like a gong, a long song,
or just an out-of-tune guitar.
Or they shake on my tongue
and stumble about like a drunk
or a bum and start sounding way-out
wild and crazy
or just plain stupid
or messed up or dumb or
like they don’t know where to go
or what to say or what to do,
and, sometimes, before they can form coherence,
everything gets dark and the music stops,
and rain begins to fall and THEN . . .
NOTHING makes sense.
