a dusty mind writes a dusty hour


9 o’clock…. a dusty hour…… black soil moist…. has not yet set in….. and this hour of night feels more like asphalt than dew…..

a drenched and slowly portion waits….. linear passage on deck for the passing…. but this 9 o’clock hour stands unforgiven arms folded… steady solid….. sharp heels digging in…….. and some blocks away a boisterous clump of traffic roars…… screaming of unborn adventures….. wheels whisk over pavement in show-offish splashes……. existing still in the baby hours of time not yet passed……. 

9 0’clock….. should have been an upright solid hour….. full of promises and hopeful minutes…. a bag whose weave waited ready to be stretched thin….. an hour reticent at the mind’s helm…….. like dew dripping from a branch……

and my writing is beginning to suck now.  because i’m forcing alliteration…. forcing from the wellspring that has at this hour run dry….. become dusty…… at 9 o’clock……. because i’m tired….. but i want to write…… i want to avoid other things…. afford myself the luxury of expression…….. but i’m tired now…… and my writing’s beginning to suck…… so i’m stopping………

    Leese, I’ll read your forced alliterations anyday! Although, truth be told, I didn’t really find these forced.

    i realize reading back over this…. that….my words weren’t as forced as i felt they were in the moment….. you know me………. can’t stand the thought of OVER describing or saying for saying’s purpose………… which is what i thought i was doing………. anyway………….. not sure i’ve ever crossed the third wall on this blog before……………..

    and……although it may seem silly………. it means a lot to have your words visit me here….. very friendly words….. for my own lonely ones………
