To write    is to trace characters
with a pen    To delineate the 
beleaguered shadows stumbling
through the graffiti in my mind     
The words    written in a past lifetime    
Letters with solid foundations 
and posture perfect columns
are now desecrated    gross caricatures
of their former selves    which bounce
aimlessly in my brain    until I spit them out
one by one    onto paper 
to form a language I understand

    You have a strong poem well written that flirts with the surreal trappings of deciphering the process of writing. Very well done. Emile. #7

    What my mind conceives and what I remember to write is often only a fragment of the whole. I dream poems and even daydream some as well. Great and very creative writing my friend. A pleasure to read and ponder on! A7, BRAVOOOOO..

    Your poem makes me wonder how accurate my remembrances are? "Gross caricatures of their former selves?" Good one, dear Monterey. Love, daver
