SUBTERRANEAN
(4/8/14)


I'm
under
the house
again

fixing something
that's "broken"
with no
reasonable
explanation

it's not
so bad
actually

I feel
totally
alone
down here

totally
isolated

cut off
from the society
of my disdain

I feel comforted
in the darkness

the coolness

I turn off
the flashlight
and simply breathe
for awhile

contentment

almost joy

like
a fat cat
curled
in the sunshine

I've got
things
to do
topside
however
and should
get on with this

but still
here I lie

considering
my task

considering
my life

not really
caring
about either

finger
on the switch

just
in case
