blog

what is a blog?
is it a log with wings
can it sing
the thing
that makes me cringe

since when did the blog
become
the thing
without wings
or song
or silence
confounding all senses

the thing
that is always 'in'
when it comes to written words on the net

what is a blog
a noun
that is no use
to a clown
like me

i mean what do people write
when they write a blog

and when they blog
(a verb it is)
what is it that is being done

the blog
is my ultimate blockage
serving no good purpose
abundant, profuse
proliferation of ideas
the unleashing of all creativities
earlier clogged
gooey journalism - an arm's length away
sticky, smelly, messy, slimy

a blog
is a weblog
is not the coming together of two constituent parts
we
blog
but of
web
and
log

and yet, all the time, we blog
not knowing what means the web and what means the log.
