[ 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 this; 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 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
