We have too many things to do.
Every thought in the world,
some beyond,
flutter across our cheeks
just enough to tease us
before flitting away,
which really prevents them
from becoming something

It does happen though.
One patient thought
rests in a cocoon inside our foreheads
until it emerges
as a positively pulchritudinous
array of nonsense and beauty.

Oh okay. Yes I know. I've never had a more inspiring, effective teacher, and I doubt I ever will.

I like this "nonesense and beauty" never really thought of poetry that way. P.S. I looked on your profile and saw that you had the best English teacher ever in eighth grade. Was he, by chance, Mr. Dorman?
