just thinking out aloud

By Brenton FPublished 3 months ago 1 min read

and all the old me's

trapped and wrapped

in those tatty pages

all those old times

hand written, typed

or on a pc

the seconds

the ages

all the time i spent

jotting down a part of me

while not all of it’s

in writing yet

some of it will/can never be

i will rise to the challenge

as best i can manage

and i will scribble the rest

to make it so you can see

hunched over the latest version

of my word making machine

upholding my part of the deal

i strike while my irons hot

smithing words: fictitious and real

images harrowing and hurtful

i carefully choose what i will

and won't show

everything meticulously blended

so no one will ever know

and if i should slip

my moral bindings

prudence is a word

to bear in mind

because in my diggings

and shiftings of soils

just out and about

one never knows

what one

will find

surreal poetry

About the Creator

Greetings from Melbourne Australia. This is me shedding some of my light on the places that are not often frequented. Maybe add a smidge of dark humour or a wee dose of irony and fuel it all with a strong flat white
