scribblings

Standard

these scribblings seem more
important than the stanzas
I group into a cadence of
words I shuffle out

these scribblings capture the gist
not the full impact of Life:
addresses jotted quickly
meeting times written sloppily

are these lines on this scrap
of a page capturing a truth,
a beauty, that the poet cannot?
the slight touches that push us

from one moment to the next
