Vintage Words


I enjoy chewing the eraser

on the end tip of pencils.

I pick clover blooms

and suck the ends.

It is not norm, I know.

The truth is, I'm eccentric.


I have spent a lifetime

writing poetry few ears will ever

hear, but I keep on writing verses.

Why? I'm eccentric.


I hide away inside my head

intentionally allowing

imagination to fill my spaces.

I'm a poet with a mission.

Don't misjudge me,

I'm eccentric.







Author's Notes/Comments: 

I also drink hot coffee through a straw, but don't tell anybody :D

Yeah, You Are Right

but my actual eccentricities are not for public consumption. These are merely metaphors for strange behaviors. Poets are liars :D .
