Calamine Lotion Potion

I have this need to write
like an itch that just won’t stop
I keep on scratching with my metaphorical pen
but the itch burns on
it’s a need, an addiction, a have-to
a desperate urge
and I’m willing to write nonsense
just to assuage it
a salve to my soul
calming my antsy spirit
like a soothing ointment
on a horrible rash
my need to write
is like chicken pox
the act of writing
like calamine lotion
slathered on
like calamine lotion
that’s been stored
in the fridge
a blessed relief
from the sensation
of ants nipping my skin
aaaaaah that’s better

      1. No, please, more itching! That sounds kinda weird actually. No, the more crazy the better, it will go down great with some scotch and the like. Me drinking is a very good thing, trust me.
