MORTAL TRAPPINGS
(7/20/14)


life
is the little
things

we all
know that

still
we are distracted
by the supposedly
grand and glorious

losing touch
with the simple
actions

the simple
belongings

which determine
our humanity

eventually
our illusions
fail
and we are left
alone
with ourselves
again

like
a souvenir trinket
from a favorite
vacation spot

one
day
dropped

forever broken

we sweep
away
the pieces
and deal
with the reality
that remains
