self pity happens don’t fight it write it out

i know what is wrong; i can measure it by the length my brethren have walked. there is a sound i hear just before i close my eyes. i often wonder does anybody else hear it. i hesitate. if I’ve taken a trip on all i seem to think i am. it surely should not matter.

you are
as i am
hesitating.

perhaps
we should go back to holding the beautiful child
or
beg on humanities street
forgive me

if we ignore
the toiling hands of the past

are we old enough
to
trust ?

this
is one question i ponder as i slip into a pseudo-sleep
and
the second is who will hold me?

and here in lies the dilemma
i sweep yesterday under the rug
but the dust of yesterday floats into my nostrils
i sneeze yesterday into every corner of the room
and any attempt to clean is futile.

dust clings.

and so it is
dust
to dust
we
are.

self pity happens don’t fight it write it out
