Poem 189 – Already Seen

Already seen

deja vu on the words
confronted with an infinity
of desires and lifestyle choices

curious that i’ve read these words
on this computer screen while sitting on
this couch at this 9:30pm on this Wednesday
night in some parallel state

there’s comfort in deja vu
the I-can-sleep-in-more kind of comfort
but also a slight lung crushing
bone rubbering
slicing of time
that renders me
big and small
light and dark
human and alien
daringly alive
extra in the now

there’s always more
infinities of desires, one could say
unchosen but chosen
all the same flapping
behind the rose-patterned
sheet on the clothesline of each day


One thought on “Poem 189 – Already Seen

  1. This is great

    You’re on a roll

    A poetry roll
