Maybe A New Year Non-wish?

Hmmm … now for a New Year 2015 Non-wish …
Morph into that garden snail,
idling around, salivating around,
barely undulating a slimy inch
within an orgasm-hectic New Year dawn.
Perhaps no more thoughts,
no more ideation, no self-quantification
in terms of prizes, no lionizing my paltry gossipy poesy …
Or maybe vaporize into
a micro-serene dewdrop dreaming
on Chuang Tzu’s eye-brow …
Phew … it’s over … this brainspark …
Hope I’m not contesting with invisible rivals lurking
behind these lines.
It doesn’t meet the wordsworth requirements …
