Passion Is Frustration

Passion is frustration;
Nine times out of ten in fact
All that I create
Is thoroughly unacceptable,
And thus I prevaricate
Divine inspiration,
A tempting provocation
Promising some sort of lottery prize,
Fame and fortune which would
Somehow delay my ultimate demise
Or prolong my implication…
If you search for such a thing
Look on longer, I know where it lies:
In the sockets of your mind
Behind the caverns of your eyes
A blithe imagination,
An empty allocation.
