Put Down for Later


As simple as they look

All of the words here are buckets of complicated

That you and I spit in

For all that we know

Entirely


And if a mumble or rust spot

Of this or that starts leaking

Then so be it

The words will go everywhere

Into nights that spill over their ditches


And what’s scribbled or handled

As precious

May get tossed out for good


As easy as it seems

What happens always

And right here is a mess-spill

Of lines that muddy all findings

Or even slop to


So take care

And look out for

Night to day or far and wide

Whenever lip-wetted pencils

Start diving in
