Brain on a budget

I sowed the seeds.842061
I am utterly capable
of growing golden trees
on my inner skull;
but with the branches torn,
there’s nothing to catch
the lovely language
I am learning.

Like sand, like water,
crushed or running thin,
the distractions make me stupid.
I cannot scrape enough coins or time together
to gather designer brand knowledge.
The mundane mornings
are washing the colours
out of my mind.

The hours are scarce,
but look at this space.
I am putting it
all to waste.
