dirt on the welcome mat

Tag Archives: pessimism

you can have too much
water,
showers
swallows
sheer expression.
your glass,
hold or hide it,
gathers
this earth glue
between
your hands.
think about it
sometimes
just before
drip-dropping
down to sleep.
then swim in
the overflow,
don’t try to
keep the deep.


Phantom termites marching,

Put your ear to the floor.

Awful expectations,

You can crunch them,

But there’s more.

You know skinny legs support

This army of mental beasts,

But extermination’s useless,

You’re the fodder

For their feast.


He doesn’t see

The cup at all,

Just tiny sparkling water waves

Inside

That wash over

Measurements and

Expectations,

Crossing borders

Like the ocean,

Drifting unnoticed

In the proverbial glass

Half empty,

Half full.
