but aren't they all random?



A Pocketful of Poesy was a Poem-a-Day(-on-Average) Blog* up until the great derail of 2013. The impossibly-high standard of quality proved impractical to keep up, without a book deal. But don't take my word for it: click RANDOM and judge for yourself! And feel free to offer your critique.
*based on poem rate for calendar years 2009-2012. Also, kidding about the book deal.

Run, Runner

best!
foot
plot!
course
on!
track
straight ahead is the way back
home!
sweet
not!
much
there!
but
ever so humble, it's all we got
soul's dark night gone darkest again
and the clouds are comin down and the rain is bent, but
it's gonna get warm and sunny again, and then -
and then we're gonna run!
run,
runner!
runner,
run, runner, run! runner,
when you gotta go, you gotta run!
run,
runner!
runner!
run, runner! run, runner -
straight ahead is the way home
you know
it's
not
far
one
foot
a head on your shoulders it shouldn't be hard
just
clear
no
mind
no
self
only up ahead burning into behind, well
how many pieces has this world had
if they all fit together the picture is bad
but it's gonna get warm and sunny again, and then -
and then we're gonna run!
run,
runner!
runner,
run, runner, run! runner,
when you gotta go, you gotta run!
run,
runner!
runner!
run, runner! run, runner -
straight ahead is the way home,
you know
