Stubbies

Inside the cutlury drawer

Murmuring amongst the stainless steel, and

Stuffed in the pocket of the Winter coat

Among the scrunched tissues 

Sweet wrappers

And scribbled notes to self

 

Is a little voice

Which is growing in that awful confidence

Its once bony fingers

If indeed a voice can have fingers

But if they could 

Are now encased in fat

Such Stubby toddler digits 

Egocentric in their way

 

Reaching for the strangle of "ENOUGH"

 

Lets hear it for me

 

Me

 

Me

 

Oh I know what youre saying

Reading through this

Raising your eyes

If you have even got this far

Well done if you have

 

Im saying the same to myself

In a metaphor for life

Pat on the back

Arent I fabulous

Kind of way 

 

Just after the tongue goes to cheek

The "have a word with yourself"

Catch yourself on

Wins again

 

This time, at least

Kathy Lockhart The PoetBay support member heart!
Sometimes, I wonder just who lives inside my head and how did they get there!
It's in these types of puzzling sort of scripted poems that I've written as well, I get the un-gettable. If that makes any sense. Aw well, even if it doesn't, it makes sense to me and those others who dwell in the caverns and dark-shadows whispers echoing through my mind.

Well done in the portrayal. I appreciate the pockets and the cutlery drawer images!
