Dogs 2014

A FEW DAYS AWAY
(4/1/14)


vacation

to vacate

to leave
behind
those self consuming
dwellings
of worry
and woe

still
we seem
to pack
our petty anxieties
and carry them
along
with us

we love
to open our bags
and fret
over
self assumed
responsibilities
and debts

wherever
we go

we rediscover
our neuroses

back
at my desk
today

I breathe

nothing more
is required
of me
to rank
amongst
the living

amongst
the relaxed
