Scribbles

Its all so much om and hieroglyphic

dissertations of meaning

brimstone snakes and ladders

incomprehensible even to those

who’ve fasted for years hoping

for a glimpse of immortality

 

Somewhere a thousand words ago

a ten-year old is tearing

his text book into strips

chewing them to black-veined spit balls

flicked with his ruler

towards classroom walls

and ceiling

some stick others fall

then get trodden underfoot

as bell rings for lunch break
