My 7 Word Itch Poem for December

This month’s 7 words were: can’t, biggest, travel, you, house, games, eye. Here is what I’ve come up with: 

What is the name of my anxiety?
Whatever I am stuck by.
The monster of whatever.
Can’t look it in the eye,
separate the I, it, you, they.

The monster games.
Let my brain house the
movies, tapes, records, even
the movie theater, the record store

the D drive, maps, the
travel logs.

It’s all in there, like some
all-night carnival. Like
Vegas on acid.

Baby steps? There seem to
be no steps to take, baby

when a leap of faith is
the biggest leap of all.

  1. Good stuff! “. . . a leap of faith is the biggest leap of all.” That can stand alone.
