perfectly natural
mapping metaphor

Oh, because it's National Poetry Day.

Just to get on the board, a bit of nonsense, wish I felt like doing it right.

willful attack of malaise
whose will? not my own
drifted far from reality
reins slipped from my hands
no bargain made
no measure taken
no treasure left behind—

and just as pointless if I write it in French.

ma pulsion poétique a fini
les rênes ont glissé de mes mains
mais je ne peux pas résister à un défi
avec le jeu de mots je suis coquine
...

Perhaps I'll finish that some time.
