e.r. saved me

i wanted to write

an injury library


a brutal myriad

of atrocious words

blatantly syllabic

manifest trajectories

lacking apology

 trip wire typography

fertile insurgency

involuntary intracasies

bloodletting ballpoint

antagonist signatures

benzodiazepine clouds

perfectly complimenting

a nihilistic intellect

delinquent verses


 provocateur semantics

a thousand reasons

in noxious counterpoint

tender collections

of collapsed lungs

collaboration tragedies

a miasmic manifesto

etiquette abandoned

a reckless soliloquy

i wanted to write

and then


over a cup

of black tea

the beatles

came to me



my angry


spoon feeding

their melodies

the divine


of simplicity


you see

eleanor rigby

saved me


(and she

saved you,

      1. Not so fast! You did say “you see
        eleanor rigby saved me” As a side note, I laughed out loud when you wrote ‘I am so impressed! Finally! That can be taken as I have finally impressed you. I’m still smiling at that! 😀

      2. Oh hell. I forgot I actually added the song title into the poem (as opposed to E.R. which originally appeared) after months of nobody seeming to catch it. 😂 …..well no matter!!! You are still the first person to notice since I was forced to add the title in and then forgot I added the title in so …. I am still outrageously impressed!!!! Plus. Your smile is always worth eliciting.
