If Only Words Marched

Some words just tumbled
                                            Into my head


i hope i can collect them
Before they pick themselves up
And run out again


epitome     stripes   “Alrightsoundsgood”
    similes

Cocoa & peppers, suck.

    cursive
     friends

         en    TANGLED                                 oaf.

 

If only words marched
       Into my head,


toy soldiers in proud red jackets
For me to pick up
rather than          HAPHAZARD             
marbles in mason jars.
