Brainy Aleck

I had written a large book of poetry that of which I have narrowed down to 175 poems.

Train of thought
before I brought
selling it out writing, you bought
teaching left hand taught
brew an invention
old idea extension
rubber band mindset retention
accelerated sleep suspension
halfway between here and there
hangover early morning, stare
four cups of coffee later
optimism of sleep, hater
neck brace on too tight
eyes won't shut at night
time management misunderstanding
glider daylight swifter landing
too much advice, no one handles
I try, not to wear shoes or sandals
backed into a corner you can bet
dunce cap off, on not just yet
