positivity (shaking from coffee)

this beat in my bones
is just vibrato strummed
to syncopate
with rattlesnake precision
the pulse under my voice

nothing like strength, just
neurotransmitted lightning
struck synapse to synapse
in flashes behind eyes
some call brilliance

but really random hits
streamed through plain physics
simple polarity

predictable
but surprising
how energy
yearns for & meets
its opposite

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

    I find it helps to drown the buzz with some scotch or whiskey until you get the right balance exactly. I hope you were able to sleep…

    Rattlesnake precision, ruh roh. :-)

    Matter meets antimatter, another ruh roh. Maybe that’s my problem.

    I love the alliteration and sounds here – and the clear points we all recognise from caffeine highs – Someone pass me my TEA! A fake strength indeed. Great Susan. X

  9. ‘rattlesnake precision’ nice one. This is a line I am going to use, online and off it. :-)
