Latent content?

guitar dime 004

 

This is the second sonnet I wrote this morning.  They are connected (see in the blog below this one). We all pout and are gaudy sometimes. Hate to be misunderstood.

 

Each of Us (Making an Impression)

All that we know – surely shaped by our brain,

Much of life truly trained by our body,

Some may fight in streets in the pouring rain,

One of us pouts and preens and is gaudy,

What may change is the view – last in line smiles,

Material world does not capture all,

Giving up what they knew, lost the fine styles,

Latent content is where most of us fall,

Sudden shift for some –  happens all the time,

Try to shake it up a bit more each day,

The trickle down – it comes right to the dime,

How fair to ignore concerns far away?

One chance to make an impression on you,

Sometimes – not a single thing I would do

Freudian Trials

 

A sonnet that I wrote this morning.  This is about sharing views and news without misunderstanding the truth of each complicated personality.

 

So Blue

 

Each day the news arrives at your front door,

Out to recycle when the day has passed,

The headlines all change, but you are hard core,

Your understanding of the world will last,

My own perspective is great from up high,

But I can still see what goes on beneath,

It’s clear to me, that just sometimes words lie,

Today feels like I got kicked in the teeth,

Cruel Freudian slips, the kind that sink ships,

Distort truth, and leave me out on the range,

Great psychology tips, can’t stop my lips,

My read of manifest content is strange,

It’s not always that way, I can think too,

Maybe the reason I don’t feel so blue
