Word Troubles


I kick doors
and if they open
I go in...

and if they don't
I just force my
way in, anyway...

I don't know why
I bother,
I don't consider
myself a law breaker,

words,

your more trouble
than your worth,

I kiss you
then throw you away,

return later,

pick them up...

I suppose I've spent
my existence extracting
crystals out of a
chandelier,

now it just hangs
like a bruise out
of sight,

swinging from
left to right,

can think what
it wants!

I can't - I know that...

trouble, no two the same,

you got flags fluttering
out of your eyes,

I don't!

trouble, yours is black,
mine is white,

we're all the same,
but we're not,

just forget it,
all the poetry
buildings are already
built,

some of course,
can live there...

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
