poem: a sleepy artist

(104 words) 28 Jun 2018

by S.R.A. Markin

a sleepy poet
painter
short story writer
novella
and novelist,
so many stacks of paper
in piles throughout
stacked on the desk
under
and on the couch
behind
unpublished.
refusing to work
and be employed
for someone else’s dreams
someone else’s time.
the sleepy artist
who creates but a portion
of what he thinks,
sits out back
with a journal on his lap
dozing off
watching grass
thinking of words
and colours
as time elapses.
the pen falls
and journal closes
they never really made contact
but in his mind
the words
the colours
all in images
perfectly vivid
like a lucid dream
without constraints
of time.
