The Writer

Dig the monophobic subtleties

Just clever phrases created for reflective faces

Fierce battles of the abstract keep my sanity in custody

This elusive muse refuses to choose –

Between the fractious diffident

…a most gregarious recluse

Or the complex lyricist

…striving for something different

The pen’s direction

can NOT be forsaken

An occasional irritation

of perpetual infatuation

The writer…
