First of the Morning

The birds wake
from dark huddles
drunk with
worm thoughts

    OK – full disclosure on this poem: when I wrote it, I actually meant to write “warm thoughts”, but I’ve always confused “warm” and “worm” on paper (in my head it all makes sense, but for whatever reason…) As I was readying to send I realized that it said “worm” instead of “warm” – and I thought, Hmm, that’s actually better. Plus people might think I’m more clever than I am.

    Thanks for running this one, Vinnie – love the work you’re doing.

    Oh how perfectly delightful! That is awesome, and yes, the last line was what made it perfect, now shhh…. do not ruin my wonderful thoughts that you are so extremely clever! :p

    (my brain and fingers seldom get along, I know just what you are talking about!)

    Again, I love this!

    I think worm does sound more interesting.
    Nice work.
