you run perpetually from an oscillating eyeball

the echo of you
leaves words heightened
meeting tomorrow’s deadline

you sit smugly
smashing a mean upper breeze
grimacing with delight
your arm injured
your own unique set of words
falling through pavement

i review the glanced-upon tightened lines
why do i fumble
why not rise gracefully with delightful words

    Hi Mary Ann, I see you’ve found your poet’s voice again.

      I think I’m better at screenwriting but I still enjoy penning the occasional poem. I enjoyed reading you today. Cheers, M.A.

        There’s nothing like branching out now and again, Mary Ann. I ‘m glad you enjoyed my offering.

    I love the title. (Not that I didn’t like the text too.)

  4. This is a great piece of work Mary Ann. It has inspired me to pen something, of which I hope to share in the not too distant future.
    Thank You!
