Chattering Monkeys

magazine

Wash out all those ghosts cobwebs worrywarts black cloud critters

chattering like monkeys in your swollen brain

swollen brain filled with piston-like repetiton

it’s wrong it’s wrong it’s wrong

not good enough for who? for tin man looking for his heart?

wash out all those ghosts cobwebs worrywarts and black cloud critters

chattering like monkeys in your swollen brain

quickly lay your thoughts out on the page

protect those tender shoots

close the book

walk away

    • Hi Pat. The title of the poem is Morning Writing. I was thinking, ‘don’t be so critical of your writing. write your piece, then, believe in it. Leave it alone. Let it stand on its own.’ ha ha so now here it is posted on the internet.

    • Interesting how we find things to photograph. While I was reading a magazine, I looked down in my lap and this is what I saw. I made the photo and paired it with the poem. This little exercise will lead to something in the future.

  1. Oh, I know that brain… my companion too with a whip always ready! But, you know what – I am learning how to keep it quiet! I’ve also noticed that once you press ‘publish’ [literally or metaphorically] the chatter stops! What I mean is, I’m so happy you pressed ‘publish’!!!! 🙂

    • Hi Marina
      I find that deleting photos and lines in writing then pushing the publish button is a good exercise in editing.It doesn’t have to be a long drawn out process. Just do it! And move on to the next one.
