A Speed Up For Halting

-

evolving eternity, spoon-lick,

eyelash, drop coffee mug-crash,

all progression shatters.

-

toothbrush, cellophane, curling

iron, savage rain, and morning

spits at asphalt, click the t.v.

to a standstill.

-

down stairs, lock door, double-bolt,

can't be too sure these days,

no umbrella, brave the elements,

hail a taxi, stomp a puddle.

-

awaiting arrival, cold wind, jacket

thin, sort through the mental

files for todays agenda, hand a

stack of bills through the

bullet proof glass.

-

exit taxi, crack a mind-egg once again,

library closed, there goes my taxi, yellow

out of view, shout the curse of rainy

days, sit on wet brick, find no solice

-

in the harshest evolving eternity,

matches wet, lighter stolen, tree branches

cover slightly, rain spilling down the sides,

awaiting arrival, the concrete feels lost like me.
