First Essay

Dredge up opinions,
Swat the horseflies
Named Worry, Sloth, Petty,
Busy and Distrust…
Rinse off the apathy.
Tear off sheets of numbness,
Wake up meter,
Roll effort out of bed,
Make my hand begin
That stumbling tread.
Bring a psalm to my soul
Rub out the blur-
The film off this word-tin.
Let beauty stretch out:
Fill this data-dead skin.
