Til I Get it Right

not that anyone asked


i feel like a hack

sometimes bursts of inspiration come

an overwhelming onslaught

catching me off guard

knocking me off my feet

tossing me into a free fall

whilst i careen headlong

into a stone wall

lined in razor sharp


i was watching youtube

while contemplating this condition

regarding certain

psychological afflictions

and my self-diagnosis

is self-hatred

i’m in a committed relationship

with dissatisfaction

but every so often

my eyes

begin to wander


i wince

reading something back


where the juice went

pumping it out

piece after piece

hoping this cart

finds its way back to the tracks

guess it doesn’t help to worry though

just gotta keep at it

til i get it right
