Absurd and meaningless
coward words fly for a while
thrown with desperate irresponsibility
in haste, in some kind of organized panic
a bunch of sand to blind the enemy
for a short while

Lower forms of wordlike worms
that eat the truth to leave hollows
scrapes of rage, trails of envy
theatrical traces to unfollow

Then you find the antidote
write the prescription, prepare the vermifuge
get rid of the lure
you find the courage, find the cure, find the poem

Not everyone’s a poet, not every excuse a poem
not every soul’s a crisp blanket of truth --

Axilla, purging the verbal worms with a proper vermifuge is an effort to continuously wrestle with -- you have certainly managed the task expertly with this poem -- it is a rendering for my library -- I bid you love and peace my dear friend -- Jon Michal

It is amazing how we can get lured in, however the truth does eventually surface, how I know it! Great poem..!!!

This is wonderfully clever, truly profound!
My favorite lines are the last two, "Not everyone's a poet, not every excuse a poem/ not every soul's a crisp blanket of truth --"
Wow!
Blessings,
Christine

A reminder in deinfestation, detox,
self-cleansing, purification,
you've honed and pared your thoughts and words, Axilea,
to be rid of all that's sloppy and trite;
crispness can be tough for most of us.
In admiration,

John

Taking care with your words that you slapdashed across the page you still sounded despondent and clearly in need of a special brand of vermifuge, something voodoo-laced, maybe?

I loved this poem because it set me back in my chair and made me think about your words, and each line became clearer and clearer as I reread them for my own particular potion of vermifuge.

It has been quite a while that a poem has sunk its claws into my soul as has this one. A keeper. A rereading of course. Wonderful write. You are major league with this one.
