Purposeless

I woke up tired today.

Hot sweet

Expressos

In tiny white cups,

Stirred me a little.

 

But  lethargy,

And the heat,

And the crushing  humidity

 

Made me anxious,

Gave me palpitations,

Made me light headed

And confused.

 

I had no plans today

So I sat at a pavement café

Sipping expressos,

Staring at people.

 

And when the dehydration

Brought on

Panic attacks

 

I was no longer tired,

And even though

I had absolutely

Nothing to do,

 

I was terrified

And saw quick stars

And white lines

When I closed my eyes.

 

And I just cringed

At the thought

Of the nightmares

Just

Waiting.

Good afternoon.

Some wine,

Break bread,

Listen intently

As the afternoon breaks,

Out of

Morning’s cold clutch,

And becomes

Luminous,

In its own right.

Pulling the river and the people

Quicker

Towards a red silver evening.

A Sunday on La Grande Jatte - 1884

 

When The Sun Settles

I know what the sand on a French beach feels like

Underneath my feet and startled by the friction feelings

Heightened by the foam lining the rocks

Much harder under

My body pressing down

to push me through the cracks

Silver lined with water

Swirling the rocks

Slowly

Teasing my vision to keep moving

Through the orange hue

Sunshine

Sitting on the horizon

Her heat going to sleep

I am her dreams.
