Think I better get a hold of myself

thinking of you

in a whisper

what if I’m right

 

if at all

 

trucks

in front of me

driving through the night

trucks

 

                                                                                                                                                                                                 behind

 

think I better get a hold of myself

 

thinking of you

                                                                  listening

what if I’m wrong

 

                                                                                                                                            I’m ahead

of myself

                                                                                               scripting scenarios

 

 

                                                                                                 softly

singing to the radio

 

shifting

fatigue

 

thinking             

                   maybe

think I better get a hold of myself

The scat-i-rific nature of the structuring of this poem is spot on with the sentiments expressed. Excellent choices to excoriate the cliche images of trucks and the environment they move through and around. Would that more could picture the loneliness of the drivers such as you've portrayed here, there would be yet another improvement in our understanding that we are all ONE.

What a creative piece, Morgan. I like the sense of chaos and emotional distress. Such a real life moment. Great writing:)

Best remain alert, we never know what may wake us out of the fatigue.

Great use of metaphor (and emphasis in form). I think most can relate needing to get hold of oneself as so much uncertainly surrounds us. Nicely done! ~Hugs, Elizabeth
Reviewed by Phyllis Jean Green 3/30/2011
So imaginative and creative. For those who say form should follow function, I say balderdash! The form in this case is i n s p i r e d.
I am trying to recall a term that means between the words, or
more than the words themselves. Probably starts with meta, as in
metafiction. There is an existential feel to this. What can't be said in words can be said -- or damn near said -- in the shapes of the spaces...oh, man. I am making a mess of this.

Best settle for B R I L L I A N T !

'at do?

Great use of poetic form here, Morgan, and it amplifies your meaning superbly. Love the sense of autopilot on that continuous loop of love-thoughts, yet hemmed in before and behind by streams of light. Love both comes at us head-on and we also follow it's tail-lights gladly and without question. Great thoughts in this, xx

The highway is always full of risks
front and behind, future and past.
Love the metaphor, Morgan, the driving on
with the repeated warnings to look out.
Yes!

Realizations and revelations...this is awesome!
And life goes by so dreadfully fast just as our driving and I wish this poem could go on and on because I identify with your words and flashes so well.

Haha! Right, Morgan, maybe you might give some serious thought about getting a hold of yourself. I mean, heck, woman, you're already losing control of the steering mechanism. Gotta love it.
