Have I done this Too Long? June 4, 2023

my nap today

trans-planetary or transcendent

a black holed rollercoaster


the wakeup sudden confusing

pieces of me still looking for each other


I rise stumble to the living room

and wonder who’s left that laptop

on the coffee table ajar and

black-screened next to an open

notebook with one scribbled page


then it comes to me they’re mine

my feelings running down fingers

that guide ink onto paper poems

assembled and finger-tapped

into bytes and spaces

floated up to a cloud

that’s waits for me to

tell it to rain


as I walk outside to get

the mail and look up

I remember


some clouds

move across the sky

and float out of sight


while others

simply

disappear
