untitled 12/15/2008

There are

Moments

When the doorways

Of

My mind

Seem to stick

Open,

Or possibly closed,

And the same short loop

Of a song

Or a thought

Plays again and again and again and again

Like an old record

With a deep scratch

And the needle skipping

Over the same spot

Over the same spot

Over the same spot

Over the same spot

Until the cautious hand

Carefully

Lifts the needle

Out

Of the groove

Of thought.

It seems I have many grooves

Or scratches

For the needle

These days.

Most of my sleepless nights are cuased by the insane perseverations of a mind refusing to move on past a thought or short verse or simple lyric

Turning again and again and again

Until the alarm

Goes off

And I am forced out of the groove

And into the shower

And into the routine

Of breakfast

And coffee

And driving to work.

And driving to work.

And driving to work.

    There might be a gateway…

    A hidden door

    Possibly more

    It’s a vision

    It’s a play

    It’s a way to get away

    An image in action

    Call it imagination

    Close your eyes

    Concentrate

    And blur that loop

    Blur it with images

    Blur it with music

    Blur it as much as you can

    Till it fades away

    Till it dies out

    Till it is covered

    With colors

    With melodies

    With beauty

    With heart

    With love.
