Poetry

The Stray Branch

Posted on October 22, 2014 at 7:20 PM



Flood


& When I set up, sit down,

To write the next great American short story.

I have a drink,

Strictly to get the juices flowing.

& when the river halts, I flood it.

& when the dam bursts & putting paper to pen went in vain,

I celebrate my humanness.


It’s a give and take.

For the river always flows poem to paper;

Rarely story to paper.


But when it flows,

It is beautiful.


Jumper


“The only way you’d fall is if you jumped.”

That’s why you’re afraid of ledges

Because a tiny part of you wants to jump.


And you fear that man inside your head,

Telling you how easy life would finally be.


But I dangle off the ledge, because I’m not afraid.


I’m already dead.
