off the grid

far away from the everyday
i live on the edge of the world
unreconstructed unkempt
camouflaged in memories and dreams
disengaged from the ratrace of gain

caring nothing for crumbs tossed as bait
i toil and spin in the distance of anonymity
my only visitors the lost passing by
on their way back to the safety of paved streets
pastry shops and night lights

none of these exist in my domain
there is nothing smooth or sweet here
where the shadows are left to their darkness
and a good day is one uninterrupted
by anything too real

like a house abandoned to nature
some day i will fall in on myself
no one will notice there will be no alarm
just a quiet burial under green leaves
while the world goes about its business
