Lost: The Poets Cut


Square peg minded thoughts
in a round world with holey beliefs

Singular hopes fall
into a parade of ticker tape pieces

The two foot pedaled journey
amidst the four-wheel driven currents

Morning coffee stories of apocalypse
in fresh mountain spring after this

To the slow leak
of free fall bubbled faults

Along the curbed wayside
for sale half a citizen off

Box lunch stiff
in six feet of soiled bliss

The Poets Cut

Originally published on August 28, 2012, inspired as I sat curbside and the word scrolled in the above original image along the passers by gave a moment of the very real sense of come and go, here and there, inspire and expire of our existence. These words follow the Lost of an anonymous prompt, a muse to whom I give my thanks.
