Builder, sans Architect

I am for the most part like a desperate freelance builder
A terrible desire to construct upon any bare piece of soil
Or naked disused platform
To throw shapes onto blank canvases with abandon

Yet the architectural drawings which might guide
My frantically shaking hand
Seem lost – were they ever present at all
And I work without plan, structure or preparatory thought

As though a child in undiscerning glee
Had cast pickup sticks upon the floor
Expecting some auto elaboration of simple elegance
From what remains untouchably, defiantly
An unconscious and disordered realm

I instead erect anarchy anchored in bedlam
Christ guide my inventive chaos
I’d willingly speculate you gifted me
You surely have some intent
Latent, awaiting discovery
That borders on blueprint

Some plotted discourse that may yet superimpose
Over a mostly misspent life; a mere chronology
And provide some method by which to lay
These foundation stones and walls

A borrowed compass for a wayward vessel

Builder, sans Architect
