To Condense This Life

Updated on April 12, 2017
Source

To condense this life so huge to small space.

Everyone has a home a place to live

or rusty old dog chain without much give,

a grey purple name plate once on your place.

To meet you with a parachuting log

or dried out squid and some vacation cards

this organization can run for yards,

a chance to lift oneself from snow drenched fog.

In the mixer crooked crayon lines, city

in blue uncertain of lazy lines drawn.

A simple need, paying my student loans.

So suddenly to file papers quickly,

your inner fish maybe your inner pawn,

to try not to leave the cupboards bare bones.
