Un-punctuated Overflow

poetry prose drip dribble stream of
consciousness nouns verbs pronouns
river of thought adjectives adverbs
the dam breaks prepositions conjunctions
interjections intersections bits pieces
silvers of broken mirrors no form no
reason flow pen to paper key board
to screen the flood of mixed metaphors
selected similes image description
after the far fall he was cut in half by
a fence meaning rendered meaningless
periods commas quotations colons
semi colons lost in the deluge
apostrophes exclamations question marks
ellipses dashes head for higher ground
stop yield street signs are useless
words words words redundant repetitious
Hilary didn’t apologize segues into
I’m not wearing any socks or underwear
for that matter a an and the articles washed away
car trucks buses planes trains vehicles
torrent of words rush over banks
enjambments levees random thoughts
at the laundry mat race home to put on
paper scattered ideas after grocery
shopping white water rafting cascading
over the water falls words pouring
splashing spilling into a pond pool lake
room filled to the brim the two hour
interlude has ended tidal wave engulfs
author reader listener drowning gasping
final breath final thought where is it
going when will it end how will it end
will it ever stop the gnomes in my head
