The Blank Page

All I am missing is that
one word
which will connect to
the next word
and then another,
sprinting like relay runners
passing a crooked baton
from palm to sweaty palm.

Part of me wishes they'd pace
themselves, the epiphany aglow
like an oil-soaked wick, indomitable.

But what I secretly long for is a dash
over the finish line scrawled beyond the
next hill, far away from here,
from me.

    Nice piece. I used to live in Bruxelles and Liege. Nice people.

    When the words don't flow then row! Sounds like your muse did recuse herself! Just some half-hearted puns to serenade your worthy poem! Enjoyed your flippant verse!
