Poem goes Phut

Mindlovemiserysmenagerie gives us a beautiful wordle, asking us to use 10 of these heterogeneous words: Tweak 2. Cloy 3. Jeans     4. Browse     5. Reverse     6. Pewter     7. Nozzle  8 Bedraggled 9. Stria   10. Truculent      11. Knuckles     12. Slack

My muse  is slacking, my skill is in reverse.
Truculently I slam the keyboard, pound out words,
browse them in despair.
The bedraggled poem drags its knuckles on the floor,
is tweaked viciously to no avail.
Poetry cloys.
I browse the thesaurus,
turn the nozzle of focus hither and yon.
Striated lines pile up higgledy piggledy,
are re-arranged until they make no sense.
The poem escapes my grasp
and dies.
