Try-on

I try to pull words
over gnarled reality.
They bulge at the seams.
They rip like worn-out stockings.
Fast. Uncompromisingly.

Darn! Reality
is prickly and awkward-shaped.
I throw ripped phrases
into the rubbish-words-bin
and take the next unworn pair.

  1. You had me at stockings! Hehe. You capture the writers struggles, attempting to piece together some lyrical lines to tray and capture reality, people do not appreciate what writers have to go through weighing words.
