The Barnes And Noble Way


Cup cakes as the reward stake in
a seven point solution to writer’s
block failed – as did the invasion
of small black ants in the pantry;
even a blown head gasket in the
tractor early this morning merely
occasioned dyspeptic reflux and
not full-blown, rebellious angst

Good heavens, should I be more
wary with whom I communicate
or do symptoms barely represent
an awkward feint out of left field,
the words were always there to
be plagiarised, cup cakes or none
