the scary thing is

the scary thing is to think
that if there are some things
that would come too easily that it means
that’s the true nature, but these come
into territories known as arrogance
and obnoxiousness,
and early upbringing yet hangs a heavy

load of repression, and the belief
is these heavy loads of repression act
as virtues or cushions that help
a lubricated communion
with ordinary earthlings proceed
without unnecessary hitches that might
impede more important matters

like conjuring and hammering and sweating
over delicate mounds of sounds that shall do
little more than add color to
a random galaxy that maybe someday
when all cell phones have melted a curious
mind may gaze there and wonder how
those fine lines became that way. Oh no.

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.
