Lucid Thought

what a simple word    
can turn into    
once you put it in    
an unexpected context    
so much unexploited verbiage    
and unexplored narratives    
to pursue...    
and so...i hunt    
leaving no stone un-turned    
dipping my pen    
in exotic inkwells...i stir    
unknown elixirs...    
with alchemic calligraphy    
i flow..    
with whatever element    
is dominant    
within my psych ward    
spit fire    
spill water    
span the wind    
or space the earth    
i dig...surgically one word    
until it shifts in my mind    
and turns into op-art    
then challenge    
myself to pull something tangible    
outta abstracted thought..    
like Nas only needs one mic    
all i need is one word to    
build and build upon    
like unlimited Lego parts...    
and let theses take holographic shape      
coming together like Voltron    
an arm    
a leg...a leg...    
an arm    
Supreme head    
then double tap my pen    
and let it morph into a surfboard    
as i seek to transform that    
one singular word    
and let it expand wherever  
it may take me
