Watered down


I have nothing to offer
but cold, watery broth,
insubstantial and tasteless
in the hungry mouths
of want and duty.

I want to be a full cup again, a strong brew,
inspiration rolling off my back
like unending curls of thick steam.
With my poignant purposes,
I want to burn tongues.

You will be, don't worry. These things usually take time, especially in a crappy market. :) Be thankful you have something to hang on to in the meantime.
