Can Thoughts Take Seed ...

In a Fallow Field

by Tom Horonzy

I'm not alone when I wax poetic.
Angels and demons churn within
egging me to speak for them,
virtuous or slothful thoughts
when all I want to do
is pen what's in my heart.

Therein are parts and parcels
of everything; be it romance,
faith, or fractured fairytales.
I have recorded stories about
stormy weather, marauding ants,
and infamously what's in my pants.
Even pure waterfalls carry debris
when their streams runneth over.
It isn't any different for me.

I indict what I think to paper
'stead of keeping it in my head
to fester when I go to bed;
in lieu of lewd, salacious thoughts
causing the missus to reminisce
of experiences before I got old.

If, a mind is a terrible thing, to waste,
you'll find my mind an unusual place;
a cacophony of discordant thoughts,
caterwauling like a cat in heat
raucously screeching in an alley
while being at peace with itself.
