Poetic acupuncture pins & tipping points

The ancient eavesdropper

Sometimes
my brain sticks
every word with its
fly paper cells,
poems
readymade
where they fall,
but some days
there’s
just glue
between
my ears.

My words
have landed
in the middle of
your thoughts —
our texts are
transplants —
hearts
beating for
another’s
cause.

Poems
are
rabbits
pulled
out of
our
thinking
caps,
cards

sleeves,
doves

magic
on the

My words

geese,
leaving
my heart

tongue.

A creative
spirit never

    Wow! Thank you so much for sharing your heart and mind ; yourself, with us in your wonderful, beautiful poem. I loved it.

  2. Nicodemas says:

    Very beautiful indeed.

  3. Love this one. You have a special gift with words and feelings.

  4. “but some days / there’s / just glue / between / my ears.” oh indeed yes. so eloquently (and stickily) put. Wonderful poem, especially for me the pulling rabbit and drawing cards – magic or sleight of hand? or both at the same time? does the poet even know?

    • Thank you kindly, my friend! The fickle muse / withholding words when we yearn for them to flow / yet the silence reminds us / we are the blank slate scribed on and erased / the benefactors of chance and circumstance / this too shall pass. Have a wonderful weekend 🙂
      Cheers,
      Tyler
