Tantrums of Genius


Tantrums of Genius
Stay away from The – Mart And it’s shopping cart With a bad wheel,
Write on paper with Disbanded,forgotten Outlawed cursive.
Not staring into
A computer with pop up adds And trivial social media, Have Tantrums of Genius. Sip on a beer
Or some wine
And close your eyes
In silence,
Listen to the thoughts
Twirl in your mind
Like a Van Gogh painting, Paying attention to detail
As the thick blue colors Swirl into each other Creating a vibrant sky,
Listen to Mozart
Softly inducing stimulation, Master’s calling through
Space and time
Telling you
Of their frustration
In finding anyone
To listen to their message. Read Ezra Pound
And all the others
The poet’s
Who had the knowledge
The insight
To warn you of
A place with no creation
Filled with people
Without imagination,
Those who never have Tantrum’s of Genius.
Feel the emotion
As you start to pace
The floor and look
Out of a window
And for the first time
Realize that you
Are surrounded by beauty, And you have ignored
Every flower
And all of the over colors
That have not been recognized. Maybe with anger
Or with regret Have a
Tantrum of Genius. As the truth
Softly shows itself
Like gazing into
A Dali painting
Slowly discovering
What it is you are looking at. Promise yourself
To often have Tantrums of Genius.
