then puppy barking
high-pitched melody
clock ticks
can hear the candle flicker
it's been that way awhile
I have to turn off everything
write or mind's aflight
with piercing thought
or rolling alpha waves
overload when sounds in trade
deep breathe, take heart
relax to 60 beats a minute
respiration's down to 10 to 12
deciphering those
epinephrine minutes
as words invoke form
to go on
a later date
not lost, all gone, here
the blue on white
read later by poet to
attempt to see some light...
