The Final Draft

Swamped and wading a tsunami of words

She revamps her story on Café Au Lait

Mending and retouching

To and fro

A lyrical tango in pursuit of perfection


A second, yet imperfect draft

Pursuant a wordless funk

A haze of psychedelic pink

Blocks cerebral mazes

She sighs


And stretches

Pen pinging table

Another cup of coffee

Malaise a temporary cog

Ensues a tango of toilsome words

Revisited a third and fourth measure

Joyously, a final draft

But, oh, how bittersweet the toil
