should have written prose

by Neel Akash on Saturday, June 16, 2012 at 1:23pm ·


who it is i might have been supposed to be?
what trade, folly, familiar proximity?
the days and nights that came and went away
years and decades turn my hair gray

i tread on this or bumped into that
fumbled here, fidgety feigned farce
dribble, treble, scrabble dabbled done
bitter quitter, littered with curse

unfocused, all priorities shot
a stuttering jazzist, a duck among the hen
flop movies, a badly written plot
sloppy fluff, a malfunctioning pen

sidereal, passed over and meek
seeking assurance in the eyes of all
late riser, i like to call in sick
easily swayed, eyes never on the ball

discipline, the middle name i never had
yet infatuation came quietly close
responsibility a long word to spell
not a poem, i should have written prose
