Excerpt

If it were all about
you
then my words might deflect
like sunrays off your windshield,
blinding the rest of us,
leaving us wondering
when the tick of the clock
might lead to something new,
something different than the everyday
breakdown.

But it’s not –
not about you, I mean.
And if you want to know more,
well,
you really need to pay attention.

Waking Up

Waking up
from more than just a good night’s sleep
or a dark and troubled dream,

waking up
from something old and rusted through,
from being and becoming who
you thought I might have been.

That’s what today is for
and what tomorrow will be again.

That’s why I’m over here
and below your feet
and skying through the air.
