Write !

Write ! Some madness banter of insanity is pulling at my thoughts spilling effulgent in giant verbs and huge marching nouns collecting snippets as it walks stomping on flowers and mushing liquid the paints of images swirls captivated with great toed boots I can hear it coming a hefty heavy steady stamp and I am almost afraid that it might rack me hit me hard and demand some elucidated expression from me I would shudder but excitement won't let me Instead it sets me to a creaking ball points and tiny alphabets that strain my eyes while spelling out its diffident request Write it says Write, while some half cold sickness grip my stomach and I wretch on grammar and thus the great feathers quill dips in the ink of my soul and so ineptly scribbles epilepsy explanation, image, wordage, spillage of sensory lobotomy partridge in a god-damn pear tree Curl about my finger and reek havoc through those dictionary brain cells yer! smash them brain cells mush, mash and squeeze the last drip find expression in the gooey lumps that are left WRITE ! god dam it ! Be succinct, be poetic surpassing idiom and useless language for Christ sake just WRITE it ! Pilloried on my own sheets of paper by my own pen because it never catches enough as it twist this origami of words i-n-t-o s-o-m-e-t-h-i-n-g I want to express I need I want To etch with you A moment of perfection I need your voices I need to hear you sing my poets I need these scratching and scathing claws and I need your delicate dance I need something to end this misery and I need this piquant this ever enlightened soul search of words to wrap up this bundle of love And toss me nonchalant into eternity Lest some madness of bantered insanity Takes hold of me
