Word Salad at The Buffet – Written Tuesday 21st July 2020 (Aged 45)

Word Salad at the Buffet

if i told you creativity,
was representative –
of your mental health
would you believe me
would you?

the buffet
had word salads
that are free to take
and that ‘lovely’ stream of consciousness
shows words have no brakes
the need to express
the compulsion to create

if i told you that mental health
was simply a spectrum that we are all on
and that creativity
just holds us back or pushes us along
and every time i put my, ‘suff’ out
i wonder where it is from
the buffet cost is what it is all about
