Thoughts and Words

those were not my words
but thoughts in a spin cycle

what came through voice chords
A jumbled jargon
as if the words 
did not know
which thought to attach with

some of them could link
to so many thoughts
others did not recognise themselves
coming from a deep subconscious
Is that really me??

A tumble dry 
made them look 
more wrinkled
permanent press
threatened to kill

so I spread those out
on the clothesline
trying to peg
each one with a clip
but failed…

Those were not my words
but thoughts that occurred
now or sometime ago…
