More words.
 1
Listless; hopeful.
 2
I crave poetry,
 3
passion and laughter.
 4
I crave (whispers)
 5
in my ear.
 6
On my ear?
 7
(both) would be nice?
 8
Make sense.
 9
Starting now.
 10
wait. Cryptic.
 11
Enigma. Mystery.
 12
Riddles & Puzzles.
 13
Prose &
 14
broken sentences.
 15
All days weigh
 16
on the motion
 17
of the clock. No?
 18
The hands creeping
 19
circles over & over.
 20
69 68 67 66
 21
by the time you
 22
read this;
 23
a countdown in letters.
 24
Having fun yet?
 25
No. One. can take that from you.
 26
I brood,
 27
simmer & stew
 28
I want summer love
 29
(just for the summer)
 30
in one ear and out t'other.
 31
(I wager)
 32
We're all hopeful,
 33
dear.
 34
Comma.
 35
Reality
 36
is a deer in the headlights:
 37
just run it over already.
 38
Oh well
 39
it's not like
 40
I appeal
 41
to superstition,
 42
ignorance,
 43
"gut feelings"
 44
-personal experience-
 45
fear, faith, fundamentalism.
 46
Let's face THAT reality:
 47
Science might be sexy,
 48
but simple takes the cake
 49
e'ry time.
 50
Another way to put it:
 51
I ponder
 52
I think
 53
I tinker
 54
I saunter...
 55
That is
 56
I stroll...
 57
The brain works best
 58
when you walk:
 59
SCIENCE.
 60
SHOWS.
 61
but who needs science
 62
when
 63
you
 64
have
 65
MUSCLE?
 66
What was I saying?
 67
Am I even here?
 68
Philosophy
 69
I am
 70
...whatever.
 71
for poetry, passion, & laughter.
 72
I am listless. Hopeful.
 73
Writing pointless words.
 74
Poetry:
 75
Music
 76
made
 77
speech.
 78
For the lack of rhymes:
 79
I apologize.
 80
For all the
 81
times
 82
I made no lullabies,
 83
well. Shit.
 84
I hope this
 85
bit
 86
will make up for ...it.
 87
Nonsense.
 88
This is
 89
the worst
 90
end to
 91
a poem
 92
ever.
 93
Just so abrupt
 94
and
 95
