maybe posting a drafty excerpt/outtake will get the momentum going again

seagull down on the beach
reaches for an aquamarine
section to give it a deep
and close to erotic-worthy
scratch – a wink at the camera
and says the many seasons
in this insane island inlet
gets a gull to reach for secret resources
just to keep from joining one of those houses
run by no-good terns.
This was not the only seagull
down on the beach. Plenty seagulls.

Plenty. But most of the seagulls
of these many mossy isles
amid the silvery
semen seas did not keep up with
human life. They just appreciated
the scenery. Not the babes
who bunked in the Mossy Mound
Academy dormitory.
Not even the dormitory mistresses
– they too bunked in the Mossy Mound
Academy dormitory.
For a few minutes the seagull played chicken

with incoming tidal waves. But a girl gull
came along and dipped her pecker
in the salty foam
that pooled in a depressed place
where the sands were very damp
and wore just a few prints
that proved other waterfowl
had found this foamy pool
and departed without leaving a note
of complaint in the slot
that only feathery seafarers
could see and interact with.

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.
