Unsensational Clutter


Lets all take this moment
to rest the sun on our
faces
look up
and not worry about the
fracture noises
in the back of your
head
as the irregular pinprick
localization’s of pain
remind you of folly
dishonesty
but the other way round this time
instead of the great warrior
to them you are
portrayed in oils and inks
by you
as the unknown victimized
without any play
for sympathy
as you waste into this
with your eyes closed
give a seconds effort
to clear yourself
only to witness
what fills
the void slate

poet Geoffrey Chaucer

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
