Peeling the nail polish off of my nails

Replacing each toilet paper roll

Garbage or flowers or notions of life

Or death, questioning scriptures of droll


Getting a sunburn and sand in the cracks

Washing granules away ‘cause they hurt

Heroes or villains on cardstock with colors

Thoughts drift out, sinking down through the dirt


Every day circles back onto itself

Noticing paths in the pasture or not

Swinging at annoyances, flies, gnats, and notions

Knowing the shower will stop being hot


Barking at doorbells that aren’t actually there

Wondering when they will finally call

Bladder is filling, so it’s time to get going

Staying here leads to piss on it all
