What I See

hard to see what to do
hard not to see what I do
hard to see what I read
and write about see hardly

the letters still letter form
magnification helps I
proofread myself reading
what I already know is there

can I see well enough to see
to still be me to go on still
forming what I may not read
correctly seeing what I see

Sheer Being

it wouldn't exist if someone hadn't thought it up
absolutely not and then it does even if forgotten
cre-a-ti-vi-ty emerging from god-given chaos too
complex to be seen as order on a higher plateau

thus we get kicks feel flow mark passage perform
our better nature realized in pataphysical matter
collateral effect irrelevant whatever the apparent
subject or content sheer being validates its worth

Wait Calm

real art takes more patience
in the moment one wonders
how not to be bored go on
and finish don't waste time
wrong thought there will be
others give this all attention
wait calm to the actual end

Editing Notes

what is the difference between meaning and actual meaning
so why say actual

we're in her head
you don't have to say her name

you said he had no passion in the first paragraph
maybe a different word

this should really be integrated with the other time you say it
oh never mind leave it

I'd get rid of the single quotes
too fussy especially in dialogue
sometimes instead italics

"spit out a mouthful of lunch onto her plate"

like is better than such as

it never hurts to be clear

Get Up

what I dream of Trump
whisked away in a black
Lincoln party turned riot
all destroyed like Aleppo

where is my old energy
driving driven depthless
now I barely can get up
paralyzed abruptly move

the day is mostly waiting
idle not to miss the call
everyone is too busy or
nothing can yet be done
