Artists- 3 Different Kinds - Poem by Bryan Riley

1)
Change the circles
into squares, thus-
fitting the square peg
into the round hole
Trying desperately to
be obscure and
losing all meaning
until even the workings
of the inner mind
become a mystery.
Poisoning the lives of
others with INSANITY

2)
Crystal-clear as a dew-drop
Melodies freeing the
primest parts of existence
freeing thoughts to travel to
primordial soup! (isolation)
chamber/ becoming as
a protoplasm
Returning with ligtning speed
to higher form. Hear the
perfect mingling of the
chimes with the winds
which caress them
Beauty, in all its forms, exisitng
-So!

3)
Sometimes I forget that
I have two hands, trying
to steer this ship with the
one, while completely
forsaking the other until,
tossed up on the shoals,
I look down, startled-
Oh! there it is...
Don't count me out,
for I'm no better, or
worse off, than you.
