Reading What I Wrote

Reading What I Wrote

Feed back about my work has been mixed lately, those that liked it read it aloud; those who didn't like it didn't. Once my poems were read aloud, those that didn't suddenly did. So, I post this advice: read my poems out loud, you might just hear something you didn't know was there...

Driving Stick

I start, I stall, I start again
Moving forward, lurching
Stalling again
Starting over, better this time
Too much gas
Flooded
Unable to move, stuck
Started again, lurching forward
Whiplash
Stalling out, fewer now
Somehow it clicks
Second
Third
Fourth
Fifth
Now, driving
Just driving, without direction
Afraid to stop
Fearing the hazard
Lurching again
Out of gas
