Random Poem:


I'm wishing my words were yours
sowing in despair of my winning lies
just to make the effort
I'm untwining the timeless question
what’s ordinary to you about loving?
let this declaration take us heights above the street &city lights
flyers of nights  to beg by morning
to let us inside for breakfast,
just insight to see
warm hardening knits of moist yeast
smelt bubbling near the flick of broken yolk
mouthfuls of stained black water
ahhh.... I’m going to miss my bus
