obtuse

| March 10th, 2006

Obtuse – a word depicting
ignorance, possibly feigned

rough as paper dolls
sharp edged to the touch
coarse feeling(s)
preliminary thought unwinds
muddled brain
my head turns in circles
solid underneath my feet
ground rising to my steps
thoughts of you in this distant
   morning
what am i to do

the air finds nothing within me
disconnected ideas of a better day
thoughts of home
and a place in your arms

worlds played out on paper
well lit cigarettes
humble beginnings of a man

another time perhaps
a century even
away from fueled machines
and choking sparrows
words as stepping stones
to my escape

my business is that of
not being seen
if performed well
i am invisible

somewhere in the middle
something good will come
