I thought I’d express it all in one breath
simply stream out all thoughts sans stops

But I faltered and fell on my face again
seems the usual fare these days

Spare a trifle my friend for a stanza or two
there I go again – nursery rhymes

Half the time I search for
the next time; absent yet deeply
not there

God, there’s ice chips everywhere!
