BORN AGAIN
(10/2/12)


a shadow
passes
on a cloudless
day
and your soul
seemingly
flies away
with the
darkness

just
like that

perhaps
it was
a large bird

or
a TV commercial

all
of the sudden
everything
makes sense

laws
wars
sports
politics
religions
economics
relationships

every subtle
and not
so subtle
nuance of society
now seems
so clear
and purposeful

when only
minutes ago
the totality
of the universe
sank between
your shoulders
and the only options
seemed suffering
or death
in this muddled
whirlpool
of a world

you look
down
upon
your iPhone
for direction

smile
at the result

and
walk on
believing
anew

crushing
life
with every
step
