feet wings pen paper

22 Jul

some people are into parameters and ecclesiastes
and some people aren’t.
they read just one book
or not even,
they get knocked off by one phrase or who knows what?
and toss the book aside
and go go go
one short 40 year gallop until
full and old and tired
descending into an arm chair and
picking that one book up again,
they get knocked off by one phrase or who knows what?
and toss the book aside.
and go go go
write their own.

    Good one. No sarky comment today.

    yuppers… good one indeed. Nothing sarky – but I will say you’ve hit the nail on the head again. This is my life.

      the memories of your childhood or 18 hours ago always trumps the fancier hand; the one filled with gods or heroes they don’t even know. they just sound good or so it’s believed by the audience.

      i’ll take my neighbor over any dead writer or babylonian god, but then again my current neighbor is sort of like sisyphus in the way he’s always fixing the brakes on his car, but i don’t think he’s being punished for anything. he just likes to keep busy.
