Just Another Random Poem You May Have Read Before in Another Form as “Inspired” by a Saturday Afternoon Headache
February 27, 2016

My head hurts.
My brain aches—
Aches with pain,
Aches with agony,
Agony from planning,
Agony from thinking,
Thinking about what works,
Thinking about what doesn’t—
Doesn’t add up,
Doesn’t fit.
Fit of anger,
Fit of disgust,
Disgust with myself,
Disgust with others—
Others for not feeling,
Others for not thinking,
Thinking about the future,
Thinking about quality,
Quality of thought,
Quality of work,
Work with feeling,
Work with care,
Care for sensibility,
Care for logic—
Logic in storytelling.
Logic that’s long been ignored,
Ignored by the marketers,
Ignored by the producers,
Producers who could make millions,
Producers who could please the masses,
Masses who pine for entertainment,
Masses who’ve grown jaded,
Jaded towards modern showcases,
Jaded towards modern trends,
Trends not meant to last,
Trends that’ve overstayed their welcome.
Welcome in something fresh.
Welcome serenity—
Serenity long lost,
Serenity long forgotten,
Forgotten by the general public,
Forgotten over the decades,
Decades where creativity thrived,
Decades of timeless material,
Material that’s long been absent,
Material that can be once more.
More ingenuity! Now!
More effort, too, dammit!
Now!
Dammit!
