I Sponge (2004)


Easily I absorb your knowledge
Inexplicably I argue with my courage

Am I to argue with my thoughts?
Will I learn from a mistake sought?

My thoughts swallow a thought I thought.
I don't want it! ...I lie in distraught.

What is it I do to relieve of this stale Inhalation?
It is bad for me but still I take the situation.

A Sponge I have become to this day
A Sponge you can control and leave astray.

I can squeeze out all the cognition,
will not be left empty but with memories of observation.

I Sponge wish to be left out to dry,
I Sponge have been soaked with speculative sighs.

Slowly I begin to die,
Leaving me out to dry...

Slowly I begin to dry,
Leaving Me out ot die.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Conscience is instinct bred in the house,
Feeling and Thinking propagate the sin
By an unnatural breeding in and in.
I say, Turn it out doors,
Into the moors.
