Mist has eaten most of midnight
laying as if leaden by a large meal
below the level of morning's shelf

Like a sleepless snake it shifts
from a digestion of activities
belching the sounds of an idle town

Limping like lazy smoke
barely outracing the rising sun
before the next night is served

I can't read anymore of this stuff. If I do I may never have the cajones to write in my comparibly simplistic and moronic manner again.

And in my town, this says "There's never anything to do!" (Which is why I travel a lot--especially love the mountains and river towns where others say "there's nothing to do.) LOL

Dittos Katy with reservation. The reservation comes from my complete inability to master the damnable naunaces it takes to put out such a whispy, lingering poem such as this little masterpiece. Envy. Think it is called envy.

What an utterly beautiful patchwork of metaphors... MP! I have come to realize that when I read you, some piece of me is awakened to places I've not been and wish to visit again and again... the word "tutorial" is stiff and academic, but you surely do bring to this reader defining moments in poetry. This is my favorite so far and that's saying a LOT! I'm keeping it in my library but also in my head. Great piece! katy xox.
