#poem Bits of This

1.

Flecks of character
Shred from center

Of emptiness

As expected
Or, might we say
Feared?

2.

Slice of consciousness
Flopping like zucchini
Thin sliced
Disappeared

Hauled to the city
We’ll call Too Bad

3.

Hunks of self
Falling like bricks
Any ol’ town
On a state route

Load em up
Hall em to the city

4.

Bits of this
Shards of that

That, that, that

Mis-placed
Take a memo

5.

Take this down
We are not
Our opinions

Which melt like
Salt in water.

6.

Take this down
Dark falls on
Fruitless memoranda

The hapless notes of
This glowing world

7.

Take this down
The cat tenses

Forgetful of the glass
That blocks her
From the bird outside

8.

Take this down
Fruitless memoranda

Add up, add up slices
Of consciousness
