GIBBERISH ON THE SOUND TRACK


GIBBERISH ON THE SOUND TRACK

and confused thinking on the keyboard
a day of clean white sheets of paper
without any tracks of usable thought
the brain track of thought is distracted
by mis-spelled words and disconnected images
and writing a letter to no one
a midday of laying on your back
reading back issues of the old magazines
that clutter your living space
of other writers who can at least
have written their published stories with
a beginning, middle and an end
and realizing you’ve just pissed away
an hour of your life
on the unwise fictions of other peoples lives
splash cold water on your face
rub yourself on the corner of the door
to cure the ittch in the unreachable middle of your back
and then keep time on the keyboard to the
gibberish on the sound track
