Dear Muse - ireneintheworld


Predict my text and vex

the Jonah complex that eats

at time scraped

from my knife – strife.


Inject visions, conclusions

into my veins and push

intentions like drugs to

smother me in graffiti.


Give me orders, deadline

my future curtail my time

fine-tune my actions

put me in traction – stretch this limo.


Be ruthless, extract

the words from this soul

sell me down some river

drive me off a cliff, as if


there were best-sellers

deep in my heart. Start

the revolutions, make me tremble

at the roiling swarm.

The End
