If you asked for a chocolate, but got only the lemons –
grimaced, teeth set on edge - keep on walking on the curb, bypassing the debris
of the construction area – open unpaved road/skin, wind world wide…
‘corn candy hot tube’,- he’s saying distinctly and
point in a new school’s direction, red with orange blues leaves installation,
‘so they’ll melt then…why?’ – she shrugs, hands
endless in air.
The sun highlighting preschooler’s smile, and nearby
cloud become a face of someone familiar from afar…
See! – the staring deer, not asking for tickets yet; a turkey, crossing the road in a rush; a dog on the
grass – the face sealed with white royal stamp, - hosting the morning, his invisible human stopped him from ranting…
The trees whispering fall foliage forecast, - still
time to change…
You woke me up. Instead of weightless soft lips - gimleting text buzz, ricocheted off in the right hip. The vibes have
shifted. The recent changes I’ve gone through seemed were not enough…
For only one day I've lost a new, only 3 months old job, but acquired 4 new students. Time indeed got squeezed. Though the headlight
accidently was set with 60 sec. delay, as said the mechanic at the dealership.
There were no emotions produced by thoughts. I hung in limbo, remembering to breathe. Only by evening, exchanging messages with the
friends, crying and laughing simultaneously, I felt a relief.
The new day’s rain drummed cheerfully on the tops of
the roofs, celebrating last days of Mercury retrograde.
