Tessa, Just Thinking Out Loud

Truth is, my thoughts are mush,
black, gray, dingy–
oh let me try another tack,
rowdy, hankering after love,
conspiratorial–wink wink,
good vibrations, hopeful, serious,
cross my heart

all of which should cancel out
the mildly depressing,
the sallow looking, the wintering,
the hollowed out,
the pious people who’d turned and
given a flat look secreting


Day 21

“Write a thinking out loud poem. If you’ve ever been caught thinking out loud, this poem does that. If you haven’t done it yourself, chances are you know someone who thinks out loud; channel that today.”
