I keep pressing ESC,
but there is nothing to escape to
or from
just a potent form of the benign

My little friend has already become adept
at repairing his master's psyche,
sleepily positioning himself in that cavity
where too many times I have divided by zero.

"But I am sure that you would know all about that," Janet replies, smiling, in a voice as soft and pleasant as ever. The comment was surprising, a cold draft around the ankles from some forgotten depth. Perhaps it was a rebuttal for some earlier misdeed, or response from my own opinion.

Amber pods and dog bones...

it sounds sorta like a poem
but it isn't

just a list of mundane chores
rattling around in my head
trying to cling to some higher purpose
wedged between
remembering where i put my phone,
wondering why the music stopped,
and worrying about whether I spent too much on Ebay yesterday

amber pods and dog bones...
what does it even mean???

oh yeah, amber pods and dog bones,
i remember.
