oldie redo

frequent breaks from routine
must be the crowning recommendation.
Too many pills are eaten
for what as little as a quart
of Calm never and never will fail
doing and this truth is known
only from a subjective stumble
smacking the spot overdue
for a short shutdown; switch

did a genuine wiggle vibe
just to the point the flick
brushed the neck where the connection
merged into shoulder and shoulder blade
and all down the spine; fanned and spun
and all that buzzed far too much for far too long
had no idea what to do with what
hit them because it was not really a hit
but the feel no doubt felt

like what it would feel like to be
hit like hit on the noggin
or not just one royal noggin
but any noggin since all those points
the fingers brushed ointment on
were (and still are) in their manner
not unlike the common notion of what
a noggin is. But see – a routine
is broken already. Capital!


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.
