Before decomposing

“Yes, I use sticks to scratch words”
                                                 E. Rinaldi

Spring pierces the veins, vessels,
I quit walking, pronk up vile pit.
This transfusion takes all
the words I’ve absorbed
before decomposing will glee.

I scratch the fonts of letters
to give the different shades
to my thoughts.
The approach – diverse one,
using a half-known media,
fresh air – few words,
my muse paused,
and the process reverts.

Inhale the wisdom
of blind gaunt syllable,
I step every day in
a hue of the pace,
grasping  the blessing
of all pitfalls,
the facsimile of
poetic face.
