IN THE PERIPHERY
(4/28/15)


movement

bits
of light

snippets
of sentences

all
just out
of sight

all
out of clear
hearing

when I
turn
to confirm

there is
nothing
there

well
nothing
out of the ordinary
at least

nothing
following

nothing
flashing

no one
speaking
my name

the absence
of these anomalies
was once
a great relief

as I grow
older
I almost hope
for something
new
and unusual

something
to show me

someone
to tell me

that it's all

somehow

been worthwhile
