at daybreak I begin
until my eyes close again
I decide upon the moment.
in my mind
hours at a time
whether the right thing
is nearby or a fantasy of mine.
the manner by which talk
permeates the lives of each of us.
of indecision, a question
might suggest a new direction
yet instead, I’ll take cautious action
I wonder if it is all so quiet in retrospect.
I wander a surreal life seeking respect.
