My knee cracks.
I broke a bone in my toe,
a while ago,
but it still hurts when it gets cold.
I'm getting old.
The older moan.
Nowhere close to elderly.
But I'm only getting closer,
so much older than I used to be.
But dreams remain proof to me
that days are always beautifully
constructed epic poems.
I'm just slow on the translation.
I've been prone to hesitation
since I first met my maker
and found out that Now & Laters
might be better eaten now.
It doesn't make a lot of sense,
but knowing that it's gotta end
makes it hard for me to bring
this candy to my mouth.
I've got a long commute.
I waste a lot of time,
deciding what to do
between today and when I die.
When a sailor sees the sky,
he sees the sea's humble reflection,
so whatever way he goes,
he's moving in the right direction.
But what the hell do I know
about that profession.
When I see the sky, I don't know if it's
greater than or less than
or equal to
the people moving under it.
Indecision wins, so I sit
and let the compass spin.
Whether a gust of wind
or just a light breeze,
I'm such a slight leaf,
tied to the end
of this kite's string.
