         by Odin Roark

You are stale
And pale

Go out
Find fresh sight
Listen for hidden sound
List all you smell beneath the bridge
That place where hopelessness abounds

Avoid disturbing their sleep
Beneath cardboard solace
They desperately attempt
Acceptance of self
While you
The writer
Have only to observe
And absorb

Think less
Be more


Absorption comes not easy you say
Why would you want to BE that which you absorb?

Well my friend
I know the question well
How many times have you popped that question?

Who am I…

You’ve not been the easiest



I’m still here

Unlike you
I can’t go anywhere
Lest you take me
Get it?

That’s why I’ll be here
When you return
I’ve got some letters to prepare
Polish up the caps
Dust off some lower cases

You’ll have some words to create
Maybe something worthwhile will light up the night

Worth a try?

You’re disintegrating rapidly
You know


I know
Not easy leaving behind your 20’s
And you’ve been dragging my sorry ass around for decades


Imagination has deadlines too



Reward doesn’t usually come from staring at stars

Comes from 


Do we have to go over this again?


See ya

Take your time

I’m a bit beat

Could use a nap
