labels are interchangeable

Escapism – all that can be bunched with Escapism
as an ethereal bouquet tagged with a star
of distinction – hasn’t had the easiest
history, not on this plane anyway.

Personalities en masse managed to agree
to conjoin otherwise disparate
traditions into a mutual
reverence for a frankly tepid

excuse for realism. What kind of mind
enthralled with being fully alive
wouldn’t in a sec jump straight
into a handy cartoon hatch?

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.
