Array ( [sid] => 187045 [catid] => 1 [aid] => mick [title] => Searching for an historical confidence [time] => 2020-06-23 17:55:34 [hometext] => [bodytext] => The daily dredge steadies
Emptiness settles

Hollow and desperate
Clawing from within

Still questioning each tip toe, bewildered step, and indiscriminate leap

Picking apart everything
Combing through the finer details with a spyglass, extracting every imperfection for display

The onlooker deeming each spotlighted insight as an over-zealousness, not realizing the reflective nature these imperfections manifest in the artists own self worth

The true creative - exhaling life into the mundane and blasť

Tight ropes, sharp metals, and dull buzzing

Soft colors, welcomed distractions, and unbearable anxiousness

At times, pulled behind in the carriage and at others directing the horse

If the carnival is behind the caravanís door, make sure itís buttoned tight

This is your own kind of magic

Iím not sure that this is what Iím fighting for...

Searching for an historical confidence
