Tinnitus -- Poetry 2009

Snug in bed,
ears ring so loudly
sleeping is impossible…
Distracted by pitch
and constant whine,
my eyes drift
beyond walls;
Waiting for inspiration,
thinking is impossible.
Poised for action, pen
rests on blank page
spawning an ink glob;
a miniature Rorschach
that defies perception.
Reluctance…
words fail appearance.
