Entrance by alphabetical troops....

Last couple of days I haven't been able to sleep and have been stomping around my house in pajma bottoms; my body quietly tucked in the helm of my late-fathers flannel housecoat like a drape or a fallen husk-- writing nonstop. This happens maybe twice a year (mostly with "poems"), the words decide they're going to deprive me of even more sleep and I can feel the hard slants and sensual curves of language--the verbal gargle of my life, slowly sieve through my pores, demanding this insomniac to surrender and splatter whipsmart shapes and images against the new born snow of a fresh page.


All I can do is stare at the square bluish tint of the screen and rattle out images.

It's the best feeling on the planet.

Whatever your gift is....whatever your passion, never stop giving.

I think I've been through a similar phase. Keep writing. Words they can't be stopped. It's like the when the floodgates of the dam have been opened up.
I wish I had sometime to write of late. Perhaps the next 3 days will give me time for that.

I agree with the last statement Brother D.
Also a thought perhaps it's time for a new creative media of expression word+art?
