Chain and Ball

hello heavy chain-
meet ball,

yellow teeth-
white walls,

hello brain-
i miss your calls

hollow teeth,
white walls
.

i chase love’s shadow
thru this home’s
dimmer halls..

but time’s slow goin’ now
with that chain
and ball
..

grittin’ teeth-
white walls.

I am a Social Worker by day and an artist/writer by night. I use the written word in an attempt to make sense of the secret worlds and dysfunctional dynamics that lurk beneath the facades of our daily interactions. I am not sure how my writing styles are characterized, nor am I overly concerned about it. I am immensely enthusiastic about music and often connect better with songs than I do people. I also have an intense appreciation for quality wines and whiskies, frequently consuming them in excess. I like things that smell good and struggle to manage the symptoms of a life-long relationship with depression. So, why "grumpygorman"? Spend some time here and find out...
