Unhinged Saint

Self sequestration, a gentling hermitage
four walls, shelves, a desk and a few lamps
a comfortable prison, furnished, paid for
by the charity of self pity, a remonstrance
unbecoming, smelling salts the atomized
conscience of disenchantment, fairy rings
worked out on dusty floors, crumpled paper
abandoned diagrams of constabulary restitution
the surprise verbiage of a well delivered line
plastered on the bumper of a rusting van
speeding down the highway with unseemly haste
toward the dudgeon, the white waisted, belted
ringed, Saturnine bellicosity of an unhinged saint.

    1. Thank you for your kind words and for following my blog.

      For me, I suppose my whole life is part of the writing process, but the actual sit-down put words together part doesn’t generally take very long. I don’t know if that’s a gift or a curse, but it’s how it works.

      Thanks again.
