The Big Monkey Wrench - Poem by John W. McEwers

What Monkey keeps throwing these things?
They keep landing in my gears

My gears keep cracking

They only move in one direction.

But they don't because you threw these ham wrenches all over the place.

Only one was necessary.

And you threw it ages ago

and now you just keep tossing pointless hunks of metal

at my heart

while I am immobile in love.

I have a secret though.

It is bigger than your wrenches.

I'll tell you if you would listen.

It's actually kind of great

and it makes me wise and calm

and I'm not poor anymore

and it's just awesome.
