My Forte

by on September 22, 2016 :: 0 comments

My forte has never been chemistry
especially in matters of the brain
that delicate science eludes me
but give me a knife and I’m a pro
a butcher in a cesspool of
a drowning stagnant me
where the water under my bridge
does not flow out
but backs up tighter than
a meat packer’s drain
overflowing with bloody blobs of
broken promises and good intentions.

– John Kross

Heart, spleen and bowel; together well meant, somehow badly spent. – mh clay
