[ NaPo 2017 ] WARNING: EXPLOSIVES

   
The silence surrounding poets
is displaced with a single stanza  
composed entirely of blanked space  
   
Verse doesn't get any worse  
than when not a solitary soul  
has anything of worth to say  
   
And what of ideas    
strained from downpours  
---each washout that floods  
gutter and drain spout  
in a watershed of thoughts  
not entirely thought out    
saved up for rainy day  
in the barrel?  
   
Here I am bringing the noise  
using a forklift without a muffler  
in a warehouse racking and stacking     
powder kegs floor to the ceiling  
with musing upon musing  
   
that can't be contained for very long  
   
and may go off at any moment
