plasty is nasty

plasty is nasty

A Poem by Allen Smuckler
"

Been away a few days...this is why. It's all about seeing the light, folks.

"


thumping, pumping the ache and pain

was never right had nothing to gain

 

prowling, growling  robbed of  all strength

something amiss within arm’s length

 

knowing, growing learn from mistakes

trod with great effort all that it takes

 

finding, blinding white heat in my chest

look for some refuge a place to rest

 

frightening, heightening, fears abound

await the cold needle and caustic sound

 

swishing, wishing all I could stand

never felt much while in la-la land

 

ballooning, tuning as probe trisects

the team finds a way and resurrects

 

plasty is nasty I’m sure you’ll agree

but dawn’s early light is all I can see…
