While I sit in my worn pjs and eat my chocolate cereal,
He smiles sleepily at me and pours into his bowl:
a trickle of “tried and true”,
a splash of “sink or swim”
that spills on the table,
a dose of “another day, another dollar”,
and deep in the cupboard he gets
that always hard to find “out of sight, out of mind”.
He makes a plate of scrambled “don’t put all your eggs in one basket”
with an “in a jiffy” smothered in peanut butter
and slaps on some juicy “bring home the bacon” on the side.
He sips from his mug of “wake up and smell the coffee”.
His eyes open wide and he spits it out.
I give him a questioning smirk; he tells me it is too bitter.
He ladles in some “spoons full of sugar help the medicine go down.”
That goofy smile I love is back.

The words are in me
Like the green apples
I ate from a bowl that shown
A light artificial and enticing
I know not how to find them

And my conscious suffers so strenuously
To aptly construe my thoughts

Thick on the tongue

Those missteps and none else
I’m as elegant as I used to be
But the wind swiftly sweeps wistful dreams
Of elocution divine
I am left only with my bowl
And a distaste for apples

Its always been a thing of mine to respond as much as possible and I still aspire to do so when I can, but I guess I'm in a pretty frantic pace of life at the moment. And I hope that my lack of replies do not come off as apathy or worse. I enjoy reading all the comments and critique and am thankful for your time in letting me know how you feel about the work in general. Especially for my work on hardcore IP like 40K... the level of 'fangasm' as I call it never c
