When Movement Stills

A quiet day,

voices around,

my mind is in full motion,

imagining everything I want to be

afraid of,

dissecting the morning I said hello,

and the failed response in return,

wondering about the future,

starting the same rotation,

again and again and again and

I love to play this game,

makes me feel alive when I can realize

nothing will ever change.


well, it could you know,

life does happen,

I might string out a dozen cliches

turn on easy-listening,

loosen my belt,

close all the window shades,

lock the doors,

step into the garage,

finally, after all that is …

walk outside and realize this world,

so much to be had it would be a shame

to stay on the couch the rest of the afternoon.

Please I would love you to share words, suggestions ...
