Purple Toothed Grin

Month: September, 2014

shooting blanks

The impermeable permanence of the idea
is punctured and brought down by my pen.

untitled

my brain is that extension cord
you know you own but cannot find:
an undulating mass of loose coils
unplugged at both ends.

creative non-process

Sometimes you want the nitty-gritty
but wind up with a little ditty;
other times you crave distraction
but find yourself the main attraction.

Jiggety-jig

Home from vacation
and this much is true:
absence makes old toys
brand spankin’ new.

Are we there yet?

First flight with baby –
I’m mentally preparing
to go mental.

Lookout point

Some days I just can’t get to that
place inside myself where I can
stand with my hands on the rail
and survey the landscape of my
mind.
