healing heart, healing gut…………

i miss you.
me
peering thru
the
blinds from
the
office
watching the
cars and
the sidewalk
people
puffing on
snow shovelled
madness
while
i backed out of
mine
without shovelling
knowing
the ass of a
neighbour
will blow half
of
his onto my
property,
against
my house
but –
i miss you.
12 storeys high
in a world
of
my own

i need a mystery to solve

i need your puzzle pieces

fingers
drag down
the blinds
casting
up a bit of
dust
and making that sound
while
closing out the
sunlight

shadows straight-lined
on the walls
and nothing left
to
pursue…..
