when time gets away


barely breathing
and unable to move
I imagine the sun
rising above
the endless hills

a simple incision
clears a path for a
laser-guided blade
to reshape my mind
and redefine my life

as I lay awakening
to blinding whiteness
the pain I once knew
vanished with time
that never existed

reflect


i’m borrowing this rock
i keep in my pocket
uncovered years ago
when starting the garden

i washed it off
in the birdbath
dirtying the water
and giving it new life
for however long i can
