breadcrumbs that lead to a poem
intellectual snippets
i am punning my way to a title
fuelling myself on film
feeding myself on music

last year stirs in its shallow grave
i am soon to be janus again
this annual hinge
where i sit with the elephant
by the door and dream prosperity

some days i think it is a blocked out notion
some days a thumbnail sketch
a compressed epic
a blazing broadside
or a word salad love ballad for romantics
