A Search for Words

2016-01-25 09.23.27

I sit down
To write
Impatient —
Restless —

I search for
The right word
One word comes
to mind…

I test it —
Taste it —
Disgusted
I toss it aside

I continue
To prob
Peering into
Dusty corners
Another appears

I test it —
Taste it —
Its bitterness
Burns my tongue
Wad it up
Toss it aside

Discouragement
Creeps in
I slam
The notebook
Shut

Tomorrow
Is
Another
Day…
