Thought spatter

A million thoughts claw
at one another,
spawning and brawling,
shredding and trampling
its siblings, parents.
Not a one survives
to impel this blurred
bag of bones to bear
it from its bruised
ephemeral state to
action, creation or
final fruition.

Unless you count this
poem, I suppose.

About Cary

I write, more nonfiction than fiction lately, and that's mainly because I started a podcast about the history and culture of Brazil. Reading for that is dominating my reading time too - as you might have guessed. I'm an American expat who lives in southern Brazil. Aside from history, reading and podcasting, I enjoy cooking, hiking and improving my Portuguese. I teach English for a living. View all posts by Cary
