Monday Poem: Seasons Between

Southbound Knoxville July 2014

 

Break free

Imagine new endings

Svelte middles

Reignited stars

Feel the flipped tummy sensation

Of toes off the runway

Let fall the jacket

Down

To

Reality’s callous bump

Where head meets earth

Sinews of acceptance

Tighten

Gravity

Ferocious gravity

Smallens

Crinkles thoughts into wisps of

Thin paper

Tucks them

Into stale dough

To be broken apart

And dreamt

Again
