COLLAPSING COMPLACENCY
(6/28/19)


reaching
a spiritual
equilibrium
seems a worthy
goal
most days

what more
is needed?

all else
is transitory
after all

but when
the personal
infrastructure

body

home

business

are all
slowly

sometimes
quickly

crumbling
down
about me

perhaps
some corporeal
effort
is needed
as well

so I
reach out

not
for a some
metaphysical
construct

but for
a hammer
instead
