Of Few Words

Of Few Words

At a loss,
cleverness left me –
dry and coughing,
standing with a lazy muse.

I’ve clichéd myself right out of wit,
platitudinous tongue,
pestering me.
Stale fingers typing common trites.

click
tick
click
tick

Wasting time,
the mind full of imagery,
blustering with delectable tales,
chortling at my fingers who cannot see,
and at my speechless mouth.

My words used-up,
filling me with contempt,
aspiring to come alive,
only beating in the walls of my sponge –
collecting rambunctious language.

Visions of grandeur
stuck in my skull
teasing my throat
playing with my lips
baiting my fingers
with the promise of fluidly tomorrow.

It seems I have lost my ingenious –
for the day.
It must be tongue-tied.

      My imagination is running wild while I am loading up the garage with boxes, sanding holes covered in plaster, and vacuuming dust! Ha ha ha I had so many things swarming my brain, when I sat to write something down this came out. Four rooms down, four more to go! 🙂 I am thinking of you too! Love you!!

    Angel gets the prize!! The first of all the poems I read that I get it!!! Been feeling this all day:
    your words are amazing!
    Visions of grandeur
    stuck in my skull
    teasing my throat
    playing with my lips
    baiting my fingers
    with the promise of fluidly tomorrow.
