the clown shall remain nameless, cough

the falls and the rises

the contours of surprises

the weeds in their guises…


growing inside of me

at the speed of duality

unique to humanity

(why am I rhyming in threes?

but I guess, technically

it’s now five.)


I ponder –  inner strolling with my allergy medication

but really, upon pages of days of consideration –

it’s time to slash and burn.

              You’re so kind!
              You know, while I was seriously pondering once, on what I would want with me on a deserted island, I realised it would be tea, which fixes everything, and cake, to celebrate the fixing of everything. And to celebrate anything. 🤭

            I’ve always been accused of reading too quickly. My editor used to say I only read the first sentence but that’s not true. Lol I think my brain reads what it wants to and makes stuff up. It’s creative 😂😂😂
