Magpie Tales-The Muse vs. the Fuse

                                                               You should know that my fuse is long
I can understand the yelling
I can hunt for the answers
I can tolerate the bad luck
But give me excuses
Or try to tell me there are no words
That's when I start to burn
Just when you thought I'm lost
Snap, crackle and pop
That sizzle isn't bacon frying in the pan
The bang isn't the door slamming in your face
It is just me
Refusing to accept
Pushing forward
Writing what must be heard
Snap
Crackle
Pop
Burn

I'm new to your blog but I love this poem and I also see that you have some of the same tastes as I do, especially in some of your movies and music (Carlos Nakai, Pulp Fiction, City of Angels, to name a few). I will be back, that's for sure.
