As It Happens

A formed and ready tooth

Barely protrudes through

An expectant gum line.


A palm reading declares

Greatness that turns

Fortune into a child’s prank.


A profound insight

Mingles with “needs a bath” stink

Carried on the frailty of a moment passing.


None of us are ready

For the lazing pre-Fall haze

To be over, I am swollen with it.
