Never Mind

Never Mind

A Poem by jacob erin-cilberto


Never Mind

 

 

interrupted thought

paper stretches to reach

the key in the poet's pocket

he's too polite

to leave a stain

 

apologizes,

moves on

gentleman's day

poem quietly leaves.

the act.
Apparently, I have forgotten more than I'll ever know.
Insightful piece, Jacob.

This happens so often Jacob, when the muse is being mean. A fleeting idea comes by like a butterfly but doesn't settle. Many poets will be able to relate to these words. I do usually get to put a few words down, before the butterfly moves on.

Thoughts pop into the mind and a poem starts to form....but never quite makes it. Perhaps it will come back another day. Poems are like that! Lydi**
