Poetry, Thoughts

what is this

Poetry | Davs Art

open your eyes
coming in from the light
and into the dark
voices
hands
touching
hugging
what is this
blades of grass
dirt
mud
intriguing
only to become
obsolete
what with
daily chores
homework
family dynamics
fantasies about train hopping
a round of cheese and canned meat
camel back water
water
water
WATER
wash your face
look in the mirror
i don’t recognize a thing
time slipped away
hitch hiking
under the bridge
climbing mesa’s
cutting that homemade hacky sack open
so I could eat the rice inside
making art at coffee shops
spare changing with my harmonica
left on a San Juan island
fall down drunk yardsaling
Dolly Parton singing stairway to heaven
and now silence
in the night
only silence
until morning
routine
stability
memories come and go
where blades of grass
dirt
mud
are once again intriguing
what is this
