look at it this way

I wonder if maybe
instead of covering bases
with lip service it wouldn’t be
better to dig as deep
as a dachshund would dig
for the faintest whiff
of the tiniest bone
fragment might emit

betraying a corrupt
ground which calls to mind
the suggestion about the merit
in withholding all sibling
and neighbor judgment
when there are always
plenty of weeds in one’s own
yard for one to tend to

About Timmy the Scribbler

Love to write all kinds of stuff I love writing so many different kinds of stuff it is a constant struggle to narrow the focus to a manageable handful and let the others go. But a few years ago I dipped my fingers into a poetry pie and of all my uncertainties, one thing that is no uncertainty is that it is one passion that must remain, so maybe that's the one. I do dearly delight in chopping up fictional works into stanzas and syllables.
