Another 'Random' Poem

"Troubled Sleep"
Wanderer Thoughts (October 26, 2009)

"Troubled Sleep is about someone having chronic nightmares or visions that weigh on the soul. It is my largest contributed twitter poem with 22 random words (in blue) provided by the following twitter followers:..."

I'll admit to a bit of bias here: One of the words Dragon Blogger used is my contribution: schlemiel.

The poem itself starts with:

"Vestigial dreams like drunken pulp...."

It's remarkable, what a person can do with a list of words which, if not quite "random," were selected by an arbitrary process which did not involve pre-selection by any criteria - other than that they be something that appears in the massive vocabulary of English.

My favorite line is "...insipid despondency worn like a chain...."
A tip of the hat to dragonblogger, on Twitter, for the heads-up on this post.
