"Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana." Groucho Marx


I am a magician
Watch me bend words to my will
And make
Stunning images appear with a flourish of
My pen, while my
Lovely assistant astounds with bright
Illustrations.
I am the voice
Of the men, women, and
Children in my mind. They
Whisper
In my ear,
Scrambling for their turn,
And sometimes it drives me
Crazy
Trying to get it all down.
I am the one
Down the hall
In the straightjacket.
They tied me up
Because they can’t hear.
Although they test and prod and coo,
I smile
Because I know something they can’t.
I am a poet.
