WELL PLAYED CLICHÉ

Folder: 
MEANDERTHAL MAN

 

24 hour minimarts 

always seem weird

but a coffee jones at 3:00AM

can be a dangerous thing.

 

It gets to be time

for Lou Reed & Donald Fagen

and Tom Waits

with a snifter of Grand Merniér

 

and like a broken record

I repeat myself

and transform simple motif

into well played cliché

 

It defies all odds

and twists imagination

into Play-Doh clay putty.

 

and a few beads of sweat

will ossify into verse

or at least the inspiration

to give proper thought 

to actually making the effort.
