the vertical march

Thu, 04/10/2014 - 17:22 -- lexxal

continuing to search

for solutions

for the involuntary kill

all similar triangles

dead-eyed

squinting in traffic

public television

blasting from the T.V.

worn couches sunken cushions

little backpacks

to trip over at the door

should take the kids to the playground today

heh

repeat my name again

let it lose a little more

walking down the same sidewalks

trees cast shadows

peter pan lost his

how

I wish I knew

crumple the bills just to smooth them out again

dammit I can’t read that number now

and the wife

pretty but dull

pretty dull

burns the eggs every morning

ashes

what motions to go through

‘Mediocrity Poisons: Leaves Mind Dead at 30’

fat and damned and marching

vertically down

ZAP

lifeless fish

float

on the surface of waters

pushed along

by the flow

just

like

mid-aged

humans
