Insanity ?

here I am, arrived at this station

for having come this way before

and for feeling no benefit, nor lack of it,

I lean to trod them once again

them footfalls laid before, and

this time deliberate more certain

each the one most freshly taken.

Festoon

whence they come
mine tender thoughts?
adrift a fragrant breeze
of heaven’s hand,
or, perchance a summer moon?
what pokes and prods
relentless stirs
arouse me turn a loon?
me thinks tis them
come sure of mindless pen
danced of parchment Swoon

Splotch

ink
spilled
spoiled
splintered
splattered
searching for a page
where nothing may be Writ

Aftermath

this morn the dawn lingers stale,
festered of travails born of eve last
enveloped in yesterday’s promises
still-born of a serrated Night
