Fresh is a way to take.

Language was created
words defined
for us to connect
to share
and understand.

Each word has been spoken
and new editions are rare
for the writers of today
are reading the words of yesterday
and trying to switch them
put that word on the right
this word on the left
throw the words together to make a scene
to set a new tone.

that’s what we do
trying to find that new
new character
new twist
and the same is hard to resist
twisting hoping to be noticed
swiftly we write words
consciously and unconsciously
to mimic that of those we’ve idolized
that we see as a historic figure
to look upon
our pens are coated by their slime
gutting the binds
eating their paper
as if those books are salvation.

What if we burned it all?
What if we destroyed it all?
What if we cleared the slate
and started fresh
and began to write for the enjoyment
rather than the hope of more?

In that thought
I stopped thriving for great
for excellent
for proper
for known
and then the stopper
cleared and unclogged
the words released
and I began to write
without worrying if it was good
because the past is dead
and the new faces here
are hard to please.

The past kept all down
keeps us all down
deep within a bitter sadness
keeps the dirt in short supply
of worldly resources
due to material goods.

Fresh is a way to take
to release our inner words
words that push through
without proper grammar
and marks
rather than stopped
by what the dead has created
a system of languages
that are entirely make believe.

Thanks for reading.
