A Kaleidoscopic View

November 1, 2016

“I’m one of those people who doesn’t really know what he thinks until he writes it down. “

Jake Epping AKA George Amberson

From Stephen King’s “11/22/63”
The more I open my yap
The more I’m inclined
To keep it shut

If my eyes are the
window to the world

Then my ears guide me
Of what to steer clear

The awareness comes
Into being
A view unlike anything
Else,  others are seeing

What I utter, to me, makes
Perfect…. logical sense
Others get offended
And there’s no recompense

Done with mirrors and
Colored glass fragmented
Explains my ability to
Communicate poorly, lamented

A gentle content turn
Of the wrist
Leaves many in
A contextual twist

For it is not, what I
Meant to have said
Handed over, to explain
What is green,  is now red

Speaking off the cuff
I trust my intuit
Confused looks, thinks
That me is losing my wit

Never looking to be right
Just reasonably understood
Inflection,  tone and meaning
Always seem to get jumbled

For a kaleidoscope to work
It must be turned
Keeping my dialogue to
Myself is what I’ve learned
