Under Dylan Thomas

Under Dylan Thomas
I am reincarnate fool in love with words
If our skin had met
our love of words would have entwined
writing a restlessness of speaking
new dimensions from the heart

Under Doubting Thomas duality thrives
a left and right view construed
Doubts grow statements that cannot be unsaid
This Thomas takes me out too often to dine
feeding me with sickly sweet just desserts
left to slowly digest a fate of not good enough

Under Dylan Thomas I will not compare
He wrote with words
forming wings for many to ride the lines
I write with air to fly or crawl to the unknown
Sometimes I wish I could be more like he
No doubt I would be accepted and agreeably seen

Under Doubting Thomas I can slip and slide
a leaking form of myself in drips of unprintable ink
Fewer leaks and more Thomas without the doubt
is the mirror vision of me in this life I seek
Maybe I will take Thomas as my middle name
Tom for those days both short and sweet
