loose ends

loose ends__________________________________
                 this is what you do with all of those dangling words
                                                    left on the page without a poem
                                                                          or story to fit into…
                              put them together in hopes they make sense!

when sentences fail to speak
to say what’s on your mind
you wake up

so early in the morning
you wash your hands
you find a word

after you make mud-pie
you make a list
green poems laid in dark stone
because i have no time

when both hands hit the twelve
make the water cooler
wither and grow soft
you fall asleep

to build your life
layer by layer by overlayer
uncover their intercourse soul by soul
bury the candle

your thoughts are clustered
if you can’t take the heat
how can i rate the night stalkings?
all dreams are nightmares
neither comes to resolution
