Unreason - by Bob Atkinson

(c)2014 Bob Atkinson
"... ode to those who teach creative writing at the college level, yet have not the talent nor understanding required to produce something worthwhile ..."

to listen graciously
then turn away
feeling for the first time
wonder at his sayings

carries burdens newly minted
for my life on lumpy pavement
simply put this wreck of words
drives not my lucid statements
in fear of simple castings made
those so hard to correctly gage
find difficulty in believing
what should or shouldn't stand

feed me what to this date
has not been allowed percolation
to equate justice circumcised
against wispy thoughts berated

metaphors mixed until complete
that nonsense we all believe in
can only drive us deeply down
a path toward firm unreason
