A Poem a Day for November - Day 6: Smart Brain

Song line is from "Burn" off of the album Signed and Sealed in Blood by Dropkick Murphys.

Smart Brain

Randomly in the middle
of the day, I stop typing
and use my hands instead
to tap out a beat on my desk.
I silently (okay, not so much) sing
There’s a fire in the sky and your face is aglow!
I look around and smirk to myself.

Last night that album
played from my iPhone
right next to my ear.
I fell asleep
before that song came on.

I smile at the late
night memory,
happy that my brain
recognizes good music
even when I’m unconscious.



  1. Very nice! who knows the power of the unconscious mind? It can be calculating like a calculator or just fun like a carousel.

  2. Becoming quite a fan of these - hope you continue throughout the month - November is known to create monsters - your pal, Modpop

  3. You poem is fun and clever (of course it came from a smart brain). I love the story you tell in a few lines.

  4. had a laugh at (okay, not so much) ~
