WORLD IN BETWEEN
(3/13/10)


he told me
to hold up
my hand
in front of
my face
and to look
at the space
not
at the flesh

that
is the real
world

he said

I shook
my head
weary
of his wise
ways

all
that I wanted
was a
beer

he smiled

he died

I look
at you now
but I see
something
else

the world
has finally
stopped
and I know
that I have
wasted
my time

I smile

I live
