The Cyclic Cyclone


being a girl
on the weekend

positive plans
to do this and that
go here and there

only actually

… plan

… rest

… kvetch about Friday
… yadda yadda yadda

… sick inside
… some technical problem

deserves an Academy award
for Best at Repressing Emotions
no doubt

born to be an impersonator
… impassive
… no reaction
5. Blackout for The Cyclic Cyclone

About Ben Naga

The Spirit that graces me with its passing has no name and stems not from thoughts and words, though it gathers them up as it flows, but from feeling.
