I Am A Run On Sentence (revisited)

Christine Ray – fast writing

Brave & Reckless

I am a run on sentence

too many ideas

ping pong in my head

too many fragments of me

run amok

across the page of my life


no patience with punctuation

no place left to pause for breath


always hurtling


through space

through time


afraid to stop too long

to rest

hesitant to contemplate

each phrase on its own

in its weighty separateness


wary of pausing

to consider






reluctant to allow

each element

of my sentence

to just sit

for a moment

and breathe. . .
