Autobiography – Blank Book No. 20

Never held on to a running diary
[I was violated only once & destroyed it]
until I started collecting poetries
[retired 2011]
documenting nearly every thought, deed & action
… volumes & volumes & volumes …
could’a been a novel of a different persuasion


Attempting to Communicate

I grab a line off an invisible assembly line,
groping for further firmament to build on
– not guessing where I’m going –

Figments of imagination butter the bread
– chew for maximum digestion –
& water washes it down the esophagus

No longer an option
– but to nurture the beast inside –
I write to defragment my mind
