Two ears; to hear themselves read.

Two eyes; at least one viewing the words I prize.

One mouth; but never a taste to swallow my doubt.

Nose goes; smelling inspiration of a foe.

You won’t need hands; unless you desire to thank this man.

Blessed to have stress; how else would I write through this mess?

What about feet?

Don’t need em’—the internet’s already beneath him.

A gut feeling?

That’s up to your brain; it holds the steering eyes if it’s insane.

So walk with your vessel; if you can’t, crawl weak one, I’ll bring it home as best done.

I’m no hack—I’ll likely fail in front of you.

But I was here.

To prevail in past views.

Does this sound like you?


Born and raised in Portland, Oregon, Budd writes to encourage readers to explore the depths of their inner ocean, an unexplored self, because it's fun once you get through the emotional part... "The words we speak become our vehicle; what you read is how I digest them.” -Budd
