Poetry & Bank Notes.

Posted on

They take what I write

At face value…

Apologies

But what I design

Hardly resembles a bank note.

 

Discerning one’s mind

Rather, mine

Does not take simple sifting

Or your own understanding.

 

Watch them catch feelings

Because it’s starting to register

In their brain

That I exhibit

A different kind of grey matter.

 

Offended when abstract ideas

Collide with their reality;

What do they say about that again,

“If the shoe fits…?”

    Now it looks like I’m stalking you, which I’m not but am aware that it looks like I am.

    This made me smile.

        I believe you might be right, Dante.

        I’m summoning up the courage to read your piece on Martin Luther King. I will take a few moments to collect myself as I know it will hit a chord. One must be prepared for every eventuality, that, and the fact that I have egg on my screen. The combo just doesn’t work.

        Lol that egg…I’ll be looking over your poetry as well, your writing style intrigues me…it has this grace & rebellion dichotomy…I simply appreciate poets who go for the original

        Take your time. I’ve only been writing for a few months and yet I think I’m finding that I have a particular love for a certain way of writing. Ever the rebel, that’s me. One of society’s misfits.

        Thank you. That’s really really good to hear because I was and still am contemplating reverting back to how I was before, when words didn’t feature in quite the same way. I was setting myself a deadline for the end of the month and was going to archive the poetry and focus on nonsense and fitness.
