The suspended ability to be so busy-
In the air and writing once again
Strange thoughts begin to surface
What kind of person lives life
Going to the bathroom anywhere from 55 to 500 miles an hour
More often than standing still?
I think you know you’re in trouble when
You grab hold of something when you’re home
In case the house makes a sharp left turn
Or has to brake for a stalled car
Yup, rather than some insightful thought
Growing in my mind all summer, waiting for these flights
To unfold it and press it into this book
I’m pondering peeing in a moving vehicle
And sleeping at high speeds
I don’t think I’ll try ending this one with an affirmation…
