I might have made a mess
By Charlotte Rauner

Inspiration piece

Excuse me, well,

I’d like to say.

But what to say?

That I hate


Know nothing about


That English is a lie,

And lying is a form of English?

And medication doesn’t help you get better.

It’s a thought,

And thinking is confusing.

I’m confused about


And I’m not sure what I want my eyes to see,

Or my pen to write.

For the ceiling is white,

My thinking is baffled,

The sand might never glisten again,

And I might have made a mess in the soap box.

    I love the inner dialogue paired with the face in the mirror. Wonderful chemistry here!

    Isabel and Charlotte, you two are wonderfully talented
    and we really enjoyed both the art and the poetry.
    Keep going!
