disturbing my conversation with my muse ?

disturbing my conversation with my muse ?

he was slamming metaphors of happiness
into his consciousness
hoping to write something beautiful
to no avail

what truly ailed him
was not found in words
for the feeling has yet to manifest
into cognizable words

one could say he was lonely
or confused
but the court crier
thought differently

he surmised
he considered
he pondered
he reflected
he inspected
and no solution was detected
just the absence of all things
of meaning

he visited upon the Book of Faces
there were many
5,000 i think
none whom he knew,

how could he
he did not even know himself
but just the same
it would have to make do
for now

perhaps he would invite a “friend”
to join him
in the meadow of flowers
behind the barn
and they could share a verse or two

he wondered
what would the outcome be
would it be painful
or just another exercise
of less than meaningful words
collected to acknowledge
the accomplishment
of collaboration
betwixt himself
his pen
and the conjurings
he managed

perhaps he would write about the mountain
he could never scale

it is not that he failed
but he never did try
though in his head
all his life he vied
for such feats

many a time he saw himself
at the summit
dammit, who’s on the phone now
disturbing my conversation
with my muse ?
