NEUROSIS OF NOW
(5/4/17)

I look
around
at what is
happening

what is
not

I am
resigned to

if not completely
satisfied with

this extant shade
of circumstance

this
is all
there is

I know
that the future
is crowding
every moment

that certain
actions today
may mitigate
my discomfort
tomorrow

but as long
as I am currently
in no pain

I hesitate
to take action

I feel
the sun
on my
skin

I am
alive

I shall
let others
bend destiny

perhaps determine
my fate

I wish
them well

the breeze
brings me
the scent
of honeysuckle

there is
nothing
else
