I Need a New Alphabet

I need a new alphabet,
a new moon to stand before and howl,
every time I open my mouth to speak I make no sense,
people look at me and ask if I'm alright.
What I feel here in this too dense world
does not compute,
me a mutant sailor on a silent sea.

“I have nothing to say, I am saying it, and that is poetry.”
— John Cage

Welcome to my new blog — brief ruminations on what it is that moves me (and maybe YOU, too). If any of my poems inspire you, please forward them to friends. Good muse travels fast. Or could, with your help.
