The posings of a poet.

Juggly


THERE WAS A LAD

WHO

LEARNED

TO JUGGLE

FROM THE PAGES

OF A BOOK

HE WOULD PLY

HIS TRADE

ALMOST ANYWHERE

AND ALL

WOULD STOP TO

LOOK

THEN SOON AFTER

HE NOTICED

SOMETHING

OTHERS THOUGHT

A BIT

ABSURD

WHAT HE COULD

DO WITH OBJECTS

HE COULD

DO WITH MOST ANY

WORD

HE COULD TOSS

THEM

HIGH ABOVE

AND ON THE PAGE

DEFLTY CATCH

EXACTLY WHAT HE

WISHED

IN PHRASES

OF A PERFECT

MATCH

HE’D DIVE

AND SWOOP

AND TOSS AND CATCH

AND EVER ENTERTAIN

ALL WHILE

SITTING STILL

PEN IN HAND

A CIRCUS

IN HIS

BRAIN

HE’D TOSS

ADJECTIVES AND

ADVERBS

AND NOUNS

INSIDE YOUR HEAD

AND SUDDENLY

YOU’D REALIZE

PATTERNS

THAT WENT

UNSAID

HE’D UPEND

PHRASES

QUOTES

AND SAYINGS

TOSS THEM IN

FOR FUN

AND AS YOU

STOOD THERE

MARVELING

HE’D ONLY

JUST BEGUN

THERE SEEMED

NO LIMIT

TO HIS ART

UNTIL

ONE FATEFUL DAY

HE JOINED IN

WITH

SOME FOLK

WHO SAID

PUT ALL THAT AWAY

AND SO OUR

JUGGLER

DROPPED

HIS PENS

AND WENT TO

EARN HIS PAY

BUT OFTEN

HE WOULD

WONDER

IF HIS TRICKS

HE COULD

STILL PLAY

THEN FINALLY

HE MET SOMEONE

WHO UNDERSTOOD

THAT THERE WAS

CLEARLY MORE

TO THE LAD

WHO TOILED ON

WORN BY

EVERY CHORE

WHAT IS IT

YOU DO FOR FUN

SOMETHING

JUST FOR YOU

HE REPLIED

IT’S BEEN A WHILE

BUT

I KNOW WHAT

I’LL DO

I’LL TAKE

WORDS

AND JUMBLE THEM

BETWEEN US

IN THE AIR

I WILL MAKE YOU

SEE A WORLD

YOU BELIEVED

WAS ALWAYS THERE

AND SO HE TOOK

UP INFORMATION

FRIENDSHIP

JOY

AND CONVERSATION

TOSSED THEM TOGETHER

AND

WOULD YOU BELIEVE

SOMEONE

WITH APPLAUSE

DID HIS SHOW

RECEIVE

AND HE BEGAN

TO BOB AND WEAVE

AND NEW FEATS

HE SAW

HE COULD ACHIEVE

BUT HIS GREATEST

WAS WHAT

HE HAD

TAUGHT

WHEN ONE

JUGGLED WORD

YOU

TRULY

CAUGHT

AND THREW

IT BACK

UP

JUST TO SEE

WHAT OF A

WORD-JUGGLER

LIVES

IN ME
