Yummy

 
Meditating behind musky pages
submerged in the murky depths
of Marketing 101, flick
my finger upon tongue
to fli yet another
when a tap roused me to turn
and face a caramel macchiato smile
behind the tiramisu cheesecake.
 
Yum.

Tetris

Running down tetris-patterned pavements
flip-flopping feet gushing to meet
a girl with ever rubified cheeks
that tease my eyelids open past midnight
shuffling through snapshots
sealed in my memory
made by fickle and fitful glances
collected in the span
of 1 month, 3 days, 2 hours and 17 minutes
to date. I hope I’m not too late.

Shattered

Whatever crashed you

You were able to move past it

That’s natural. We recover. We get damaged

And then we rebuild

I couldn’t rebuild. I don’t even think I want to rebuild 

I was shattered and maybe it was best to keep me that way.

Fast Pace

Standing in the middle of a huge crosswalk

In a huge concrete jungle

Where eyes are looking down and looking ahead

Hands occupied with a cup of Starbucks, cellphone, newspaper

In their own bubble

And I am still standing here

In awe

With a nagging question:

“Why can’t I fit in?”
