Let’s Just Talk About The Weather

all built up passion
washed away
sigh!
hours and hours invested
watering rocks
to get through to The Creator halfway
to dissolve boundaries
and have free flowing opinion traffic
washed away
when the only thing that mattered to The Godhead
was who remains one up in the conversation

skeletons
wrapped in the starry night
with bone-thin skin
anxiously trying to sleep
all their bleak dreams

vigilantes
looking to be heroes
for a moment
even an ant may believe
it’s here for some grand purpose

autocratic
politicians divide
with steady hands
slicing in the scalpel
of a silver tongue

left wing, right wing
and on either side
grass
that grows
in the Spring

who knows which word
gets me stabbed or elbowed
or mapped to a cell
all the things that can happen
over a dinner gone wrong
