Bitterness

Bitterness

A wedge of fruit
A blade of grass
A ray of sun

A drink in hand
A time to kill
A loaded gun

A soiled mind
A wounded heart
A scene is set

A country home
A world apart
A deep regret

A cheating man
A trigger pulled
A tear is shed

A pool site dug
A place of rest
To lay his head

A day has passed
A concrete bed
Conceals the worst

A silent dawn
A second plan
An unquenched thirst

A shadow eye
A stolen car
A race to kill

A vitum lives
The cost is dear
A bitter pill

A court convicts
A cripple screams
A sentence passed

A troubled day
A damaged pool
She might get gassed

I was thinking about this Hakau style everyones taking about. Minimalism and that kind of story approach.I does seem somewhat jarring but an interesting chalenge to seek out the right contractives.

You knowhow it happens I'm sure. You sit down with a pad and pencil (I like a 2B) You know that you don't don't know what the direction of the first three words is but you let it have it's way. I've come to terms with my muse and almost always let the small eddies and currents show me what's in my pencil today. Maybe 20% of the things I write are thoughfully contrived. Right now I'm writing a short story and I don't really care for the subject matter, but the words are coming and ... Thank you sugar for the entry.

Poetry comes nearer to vital truth than history.
