Crepe Paper Blues -- Poetry 2011

regardless of snow storms,
sun flashes, blasting rain
showers or seasonal allergies,
today was a lost cause…
sitting mildly incapacitated
no discernable reason
sags spread greeting chair
girth expanded inordinately
discouragement flowed
creative motivation ebbed
in its place sloth,
fallow thoughts…
former pleasure burnt
faded ember to ash.
couldn’t paint a cloudless
blue sky while listening
to slack key guitar
but it's not the same
as my crepe paper blues…
