Belly up to the bar, me lads

Belly up to the bar, me lads—
Drinks on the mouse…
House that is:
Unless the little dude under the hat
Is buying—
We all wear one, you know.
Bandanna!
Le Plume!
Hiding beneath in plain view—
The headless ostrich
His dark a mistaken refuge.

I had thought it always easy—
To take things apart,
Put myself back together—
A molecule mentality
This writer sometimes has—
A Ping-Pong of notions;
One courtside then the other;
Changing form
And words to another—
To and fro
Stays and goes
Can be major surgery
When it comes to poems and prose.

When asked of his brilliance
The newly revised sage
Thoughtfully replied…
“Not entirely illumined—
Half submerged
Half screaming with light!”
