disorientation

11/12/2009

a whirlwind has entrapped me
from within its clutches I peer out
the world is a bazaar of strangers
languages leak in jumbled
unhurt and still mid-flight
perhaps I’ll land in a bail of cotton
or am I destined for rocky shores
broken, a ship that missed the lighthouse

I will worry about landing when I’m let down
for now the fight against the debris ensues
avoiding dangers as best as possible
survival, reflexes and instinct
calling for help is futile
my destiny is mine to pursue
scrapping through one dustdevil to another

  1. Where you been at, mister? Off someplace writin’ mighty fine poems like this one, from the looks of it…

      You’re a funny one, Yosef. I’ve just started a new job that has had my brain made to mush. I’m glad you stopped by despite my lack of production of late. Thank you, sir.
