The chair in the corner.

The chair in the corner

when you have written
ten thousand stories
ten thousand more to come
for a twenty dollar bill
a life long pass to the front lawn
of the asylum,
a sturdy wheelchair,
a sturdier nurse,
an afghan blanket
to cover your thoughts and abandoned
dreams,dreams,dreams,
the muse at times
will often question this unusual
behavior,
and walk away screaming
screaming
at the top of its
once poetic lungs,
please give up the ghost,
give up the ghost,ghost,ghost,
scurrying to the chair in the corner,
sulking,watching,glaring,
wondering why,
nothing but silence,
no words,
“its ok,”I say,
“you will get over it,”
as I reach for the
pen,
and grin……………………….

Artist's Description

simple man…simple words…simple thoughts………………….
………………………………………………………………………….

end of the rainbow
…………………………………………..
they no longer stand on the corner,
with their pendulums of gold,
at the end of silver chains
swinging to and fro,
watching as the sun departs the
city of angels
maestros play their games,
the destitute and broken hearted live and love
in pain,
no chapeaus and silver suits
adorn the streets of hope,
the hills come alive
as the night begins to thrive
its a shame to see such despair,
with their fingers caught
in the cookie jar,
searching for unattainable
dreams?
