Purrsday Poetry: This that they call mania

Hi everyone,

Today’s Purrsday Poetry post comes from crumpledpapercranes.

this that they call mania

energy,
I don’t know you.
But I’m caught
grappling with excess
and stressors floating
in a plastic cup,

slices of strawberry,
and the pinch of limes.
But is it enough
to wake me up?
The elevator mirror
laughs autopilot at every commuter,

while nickels drop
in a trashcan
where eager orange peels
pantomime and smile
beneath the sunlight
out of time.

melatonin,
mistook for the thing
that paints rainbows
and syntactic breadth,
may, in proper acknowledgement,
drift to save us all.

  1. wow Marc! love this
    melatonin,
    mistook for the thing
    that paints rainbows
    and syntactic breadth,
    may, in proper acknowledgement,
    drift to save us all.

  2. Strong use of metaphors. Not my favorite, but it grows on you. Not a bad poem at all. Thanks for sharing this on Marc’s blog. Not bad at all!

  3. Your blog is so cute, Marc. I love cats, but even if I didn’t this it so appealing. Thanks for following my blog. I could learn a lot from you! 🙂
