Beats 1

Kill Your Darlings

 

 

They surge with idealistic urges
ripe with poetic angst
against prejudicial columns and old bricks;
they turn mind-scraping cartwheels,
kaleidoscope cobwebs breaching their minds
little-bitty itsy-bitsy earth-shattering ideas
come and go
silent and unannounced
and ephemeral
and they know something wonderful has just passed through
their rusted lives
like a bullet train of condensed meaning

Life

An explanation flits like a drunken butterfly
in front of hazy emotions
whispering life’s secrets in their ear
in a subliminal, foreign language
too cheap to listen to
and too quiet to hear
over the din of raucous laughter

  1. I love this one! Especially these lines: “kaleidoscope cobwebs breaching their minds little-bitty itsy-bitsy earth-shattering ideas” and “too cheap to listen to and too quiet to hear over the din of raucous laughter” Well done 🙂
