Wild Poems To Lasso

I was just lying there
Almost asleep
When my mind broke open
Like a dropped egg
Thoughts and poems slid out
Floating free
Running wildly
Kicking at my brain
I was afraid as I came fully awake
To move
For fear I would disturb the filmy mist
They floated in
I repeated silently over and over these words
Wanting to cage them
Press them down on a pinnacle of no escape
When I at last rushed toward paper
They scattered like a wild herd of horses
I gathered my pen and began to lasso the closest
And worked my way to the end
