My #22 for National Poetry Month


days loom long, shadows delayed

by the closing of eyes

an evisceration of power

in a simple act.


today i sat

beneath weeds

taller than my eyes

obscuring the horizon,


pushed toes down

and wondered

how it is that

grubs find their places

without schedules


"places everyone.

five minutes to go."

how will i know when it is time

to start?

      This reminds me of the fact that life is too scheduled, too compartmentalized. We need to take a break and recharge ourselves by discharging our timepieces and cellphones for a period of time.
