A vacated mind maims creative thought
Verses corroded by prosaic phrase
Dust covered words awaken a whisper
Pieces of poetry slowly crawl onto a page

Homeless hyperboles loiter in alleys
Alienated allegory roams streets of rhyme
Castrated prefixes lie suffixing in the gutter
Muted metaphors scream in iambic time

Assisting mauled meter onto a blank sheet of white
As a sonnet births night to a day that is dying
A poetry constellates a universe to life
