crumpled thoughts,

on a page,

turn into pages,

turn into words.

no paintings tug

at my

borrowed inspiration.

a mountain,

ekphrastic.

no feelings spark

definite frustration.

i fail to reach the top.

i can only add to it.

ain’t shit to blog about. my people already got it on lock.

From the BBC:

A 32-year-old man has survived with minor injuries after being hit by a flat-bed truck that was rammed by a train in Turkey. CCTV footage shows Cem Tokac disappear under the wheels of the truck as it collides with the train. Mr Tokac has said he remembers nothing of the incident and that life is ‘beautiful’.
