As a bird

gull in free flight

free verse
dismisses regimental rhyme
overrules page forms
lets accentuals loose
liquid quicksilver
lava flow
– but no-
dry dip-pen scratchings
scuttle like crabs off sandpaper
scatter almost scatologically
cerebration, constipation
Try Harder! – now there’s the strain
bumbling stumbling block
I just – must – let – go
