fine cracks through the glaze

a chip on the bottom

sound but worn

waiting to pour out on the page

so the page languishes


Sometimes my mind is a running engine

humming and churning

hot and full of sharp edges

waiting to be harnessed into a story

Some days my mind is well behaved

full to the brim with thoughts

tires spooling neatly over asphalt

pages filling

story running

and it seems like it could never be

anything else


Sometimes is only
