I like
drawing a blank
now and then,
or shooting a gun
only using blanks,
no need to involve
the hurt of others
with my mind’s

I’ve also
blanked out
the words
of others,
that don’t soothe
my thoughts,
not all words ease
my tired mind
after a day
of drawing, shooting
and erasing

My mind
at this venture
has gone blank
as well

Don’t worry, though
it’ll get filled up again
