repeatedly dies in wakefulness (is this that example of when i try hard to create impact, and my words suffocate in an overdose of intended poeticism? i did add the wakefulness upon revision. thought it contrasted well with the dream. that's what they teach in schools, after all.)
did you see me?
did you look away?
there are no words today
that are round
no words to create juice
even to create predictable sounds
feels like yet another mode of deception
i feign a poem
there is no poem
today thoughts are weary
the jackal hunts the vaccuum
and square is the shape that always confines me
a good poem is a bad dream
a bad poem is just awkward
this is awkard
this is so awkward
garbage in garbage out equilibrium
but even that. who am i kidding.
i can't even get away with a make-what-you-want-to-make-out-of-that.
too many evens betray an aura of oddness.
erm. awkward pause.
it can end you know.
even if it's not a poem. a poem. poem.
...something undignified about a poem that refuses to end.
