Stop,
You didn’t hear it,
The music deep within
You’re writing an ocean of
Symbol
To drown your self within

No matter how deep that ocean
No matter how deep that word
No matter how deep you stuff it
You’ll cough out all the verbs:

Go do this later,
and perhaps do this too

Then once youve accomplished it,
You’ll retreat into the booze.

So stop until you hear it,
Or at least wait till then,
By breathing in some music
That subtle tonic mixed with gin.

– Christopher Dumitru
