Max Nowak

Like a sumo wrestler
I sit here chewing some bark
Floating in a misty haze of oblivion
Resting, waiting for inspiration
To satisfy my itch.

But instead I must bide
my time
Frustrated by this itch
which I can feel
but just out of reach
It is my conscience
It gnaws deep within me
It will not let me rest.
