Scuttle Buttle Segue

whimsical waft waffle

By Brenton FPublished 25 days ago β€’ 1 min read
Top Story - June 2024

i'm walking sideways

like a crab

more shuffle

than step

a whole lot of buttle

in my scuttle

i'm reaching inwards

trying to find the source

of the things i don’t want

the things i don’t need

the things i don't like

the things i don’t heed

and the things you can buy

for a dollar

more dissonant reflection

the any real introspection

i'm hurtling backwards

at twice the speed of fright

and from where i stand

completely unplanned

i can see both day and night

i'm flailing, falling in a fashion

a spasticised backstroke in the air

my rate of descent should be alarming

and yet i don't seem to care

surreal poetry
