LIFE COMPRESSED
(9/18/15)


sometimes
our routines
are shattered
by accident

disease

employment
implosions

relationship
disasters

many
of our options
are stripped
from us
due to
financial

social

or emotional
setbacks

suddenly
we exist
in smaller
orbits

our lives
fold in
and over
themselves

we begin
to see connections
that we seldom
noticed
before

parallels

coincidences

incidences
of déjà vu

appear
more frequently
as our daily
circles
become smaller

our interests
become
more focused

these things
seem
to tell us
that we belong
in these simpler
surroundings

that perhaps
this fallen
state

is our
natural state
