In “honor” of daylight savings time….


I tried saving time
but somehow I lost track of it
it got away from me
so I trailed it to where it was hiding
it wasn’t even paying attention
just wasting itself reeling about the streets looking for grey matter to descend on
to cling to
trying to strike up a conversation about relativity and black holes
and the age and depth of the ocean
about Nostradamus
or the death of kings
I spoke nicely to it and it came back with me
just in time
and I promised that we would have one of those long meaningful discussions
and I meant it
I really did
but there just wasn’t
there just never is

I write. I write a lot. A. LOT. There are times I am half blind with a sentence ricocheting off the walls of my stupid, cant be shut off to save my life, brain. I am miserable until I get it down on paper. Punch it up a bit. Usually cross out half of it. And then breathe. Relax. Only to do it all again..... But I just thought that was me. How I am. Not a writer....noooo...not me. Writers are.....writing people. People Who Write. REALLY write. Write things that matter. All grown up very important things. Not.....me. I am just a scribbler of sorts. And I was/am content with that....if it's true, well then....a scribbler am I. Until the thought wormed its way in to my brain (the furtive sneaky bitch) that maybe...just maybe...that is writing. My style. My strange way. But....still writing. So here I am at the dance. Not sure I know any of the moves and the music is entirely mine. But.....only one way to find out. Would you care to join me?
