So this is the one
I struggle
To double;

To make more sense
Of than
A clause’s length,

Or mention an incident
From the day
Worthy of awe’s remembrance:

An adventure steeped in
My personal luck
And backed by the public’s appreciation;

An inspiration created more than a thousand
Miles away in the mid west
Or passed hand to mouth to me from breath;

An invention of my trade, made flesh and paged for
Next year's eyes to flash upon one
Long afternoon with nothing better to do than read,

And be grateful to the writer for delighting in simple props
Rather than stewing over the cubed blocks that
Were bottlenecking progress to the next day’s wonderful phrases.
