The Bell Rang Clarity

On the brighter side
there’s a guarantee
mediocrity isn’t patented

‘tho creative ideas claims
to graceful innocence and
fame weigh awkwardly

in believing there is only
you and no-one understands
except through words –

you could ask would there
be a more disabling phase
to live through again

learning exclusivity takes
years of classroom faith yet
you survive on the evidence

they are still alive out there
revelling in stale figments
of playground imagination

and you are saved by the
bell that rang clarity – called
you in from the play
