a significant side
is starting to pace
around and has stubbed
a pile of evil nails
wondering with harsh huffs
when we will wander on one of those
where the purpose is pure play
and consonants we can drag
for great grimy miles
of lines and soon as a clear
idea begins to stick
a snout out its hole
we have at ready our snappy tweezers
and the phantom half-baked
on the veranda can get to the stove
and whip up artificial angel hairs.
Those old avenues the significant
side with harsh huffs is wondering
and puffing. Well this latest foray
does play but it has become
heavy – or not heavy, no not heavy –
heavier – not even heavier.
Involved. More involved. Why not flick
it a bit? Fear? Maybe. Fear of losing.
But that’s heavy itself. Oh but once
it is all set up tremendous fun may flood
and run wherever and maybe forever.
