holder of all things
work the half sheets of secret
thoughts drained off in small squirts
answer email coach student essayists grade
modest summaries of Swift epic hero analysis narrative accounts
headache of verse
clamors against sinus
mutter placations of ego look
at me listen to me write me procrastinate
drag working feet no further no farther stop Englishing
correcting red penciling penicillin of the soul must be unleashed
I slide the paper
from the hiding place
pen scrawl pay obeisance stanza
back and survey that which I have little sway
over less credit for merely a vessel holding ink

This is so typical–those:
“half sheets of secret
thoughts drained off in small squirts”
That is so often how I write…keeping a notepad nearby to blot up those squirts.
Oh, I like that turn of phrase – ‘blot up those squirts!’ Thanks for looking in! Jilly
Writing in my second language I have to smile at the verb Englishing — 🙂
I enjoy breaking the rules of this splapdash language in poetry. Thanks for looking in! Jilly
Wow…this is like a waterfall of words. Love it.
Thank you! That’s a lovely take on it:)
Thanks for looking in, Jilly
