Half a sonnet

a lost fragment of thought
strung along by a wandering mind
the cold uninspired hand wrought
with guilt over unspent time
strung along by a wandering hand
laughing in disgust at time left languid
with burgeoning guilt over futures began
and lost fragments of what’s already been said.

This is still a work in progress.

In other news, July's Poetry Now is still at press but will be available this week sometime. It's a great issue with poetry from Art Beck, Mildred Hunt, BL Kennedy, Kathy Kieth, Arthur Winfield Knight, Joyce Odam, Bonnie Rollin, Pearl Stein Selinsky, Philip A Waterhouse, and Diane Webster; plus, Carol Frith reviews Kathy Kieth's Why We Have Sternums. It's a great issue. You can download it from www.sacramentopoetrycenter.org next month...

And you haven't done so already, check out Kathy Kieth's blog: http://medusaskitchen.blogspot.com/

There's a lot of past in the piece, what my be effective the next part, is a contra- more counteractive bit, more hopeful, challenging, lifting bit, saying something against the guilty, against the coldness, limp despair that is felt in this piece... or you could take it further down; how good are you at that?
