National Poetry Month: day 21/poem 21

This next never-before-seen poem was written in 1998 or 1999 post-LA.


Contradiction

Moods wash over me--
Not always
A sea of tranquility--
But sometimes.
Blood pours forth from me--
Not always--
But sometimes,
Every month in days of three.
Dreams:Demons
Fears:Fun
Hopes:Headaches
Listlessness:Love
Passion:Procrastination
Isn't contradiction an absolute?
Absolutely--well--
Not always,
But sometimes.
Rage overwhelms me--
Not always
In forms of productivity,
But sometimes.
Love saves me--
Not always,
But sometimes--
In the form of you.
