loose change

December 2, 2009

don’t even half choose

to carry loose change.

It lets itself be known to me.

A quiet man  is noisy.

I search for the underlying themes

that surfaces, as blue gills & dying perch will do.

An unresolve.

An unsettlement I mean to settle up.

Which flotsam, riches  from the deep end;

Raucous, compelling, telling sleeptalk?

Finally

Find a pen

And something to write on.

Mind,  legs-open for

Something to write on.

        but i thank you very much and wish for all the vistors i can get.

      • I have been called a comedian from time to time (I like it when little children say “You’re funny”,my favorite compliment), but these things I mentioned were straightforward. I made you a favorite so that i might see what you’re up to from time to time. I hope you do the same.thanx,G

        Please forgive the Werewolf.
        He sneaks in during the wee hours after consuming copious amounts of 85% dark chocolate and diet mt. dew.
        He does not take compliments well as they distract him from hollowing at the moon and dwelling on his insecurities.
        But I am back to let you know that I will follow your work and hope to see your comments on mine sometime.
        Thank you for you kind words and patience with me and my furry counterpart.
