Picking

You slash at the sheet
to the margin’s surprise
like a scythe felling wheat
while chaff plainly flies;

a calloused pursuit
will hinder the yield
of tantalizing fruit
once foraged afield.

Hi beth, thanks, I was trying to capture my frustration (or release it depending on how you look at it)

Hey Noah, I appreciate that, thanks.

Hi soulless, long time no see, I'm so glad you stopped by and thanks for the comment.
