Real Muscles Like Exercise

My body’s tired

It wants to rest

My mind is not

It’s just a pest

It thinks up plans

And dreams and goals

Until my head just

Nods and lolls


What will I do

With a brain that won’t stop

It thinks and it thinks

It plans ‘til it pops

I’ll drink up hot tea

And take an Advil

To make this poor mu-

scle rest quiet and still

Like Words on Azure-Colored Paper


Clouds perform much like words do

bunching together in massive paragraphs, loaded to the brim with thoughts sayings run-on sentences repetitions no spacing no punctuation action motivating urging others to do something anything run or

developing across azure-colored paper like short and long sentences, short paragraphs, conversations, with spaces of varying length, or

appearing like lone words, one here, one there, with long intervals of writer’s block, just blank blue paper, and

they will

arise boldly in the daylight for all to see, unafraid of their statements, or

sail quietly through the night’s cloaking darkness like unheard, unseen thoughts, afraid to be noticed
