Running on a Flat Tire

(twenty-one of 30 - Official DUP NaPo/GloPoWrimo 2020)

The spills came and easily
often Iíd wake with them
intact whole ready for the
parchment and post.

A feeling (later i concur)
strong writes or relatable
humorousÖÖ..worthy
of rereads & recall.

But slowly and surely
my brain began to wane
as if I lost something
inch by inch
centimeter by centimeter
Pounds per Square Inch per Pounds per Square Inch*

running on empty is how it feels
although, in reality, i no longer run
unless a Javelina** is chasing me
even then itís a controlled Fast-Walk.

This feel is different from
Writerís Block, yet not dissimilar.
Must be a zen thing
more meditation and less
overthinking is the ticket
to (some/no)where!?

9 more days to go
& so
iíll use some
Plumberís Solder
for a temporary fix
on my leaky faucet.
