"prologue to a poem"

November 1, 2019

 

 

observe with hungry wolf eyes,

 

          surveil.      interrogate.

 

bolt upright     3am

 

experience

 

         smell | see | taste | touch | hear

 

process.     absorb.      note.

 

insight informs incitement,

 

         percolate | caffeinate | agitate

 

drill down.     find the precise 

 

          location of the grip.

 

recite.      revise.      repeat.
