Unplanned Poetry - The List of What Are Not

The List of What Are Not


what is the fascination
with my art of procrastination?

what is the whimpering sound
made when his father's around?

what is the glance turned aside
when I walk beside you with pride?

what is the moan that precedes
the fingering of rosary beads?

what is the human condition
that precludes life's extradition?

what is the meaning of this
list that I've sealed with a kiss?

I like this very much. It's a great list full of meaning.

Thanks, Brian. A lot can be read into those thoughts.

I don't want to find "the meaning of this." The emotion evoked suits me just fine. And thanks for passing by my blog and commenting.
