DOWN ON PAPER
(4/20/14)


the extremes
seem
the best fodder
for literature
of course

but I prefer
the mundane

I enjoy
the search
for something
within the ordinary
to picture
in words

dark days
of depression
open
so many topics
that I'd rather
keep closed

I would need
to chronicle
the banality
of each breath
in order
to really capture
the essence
of my ennui

I prefer
rather
to simply breathe
and suffer
myself
staring
at a blank
page
