The Horizontal - Aug. 11, 2022

a different playing field

calls us as we age

the horizontal

going to be bed early

sleeping in taking naps


those nose-to-the-wind

pursuits of younger days

have banana-spined

into more carpet gazing

sidewalk critiquing

shoe scrutiny

I can tell you

what part of the rug

needs cleaning

before I discover

the garage light bulb

that’s burned out

while the horizon

is now at the

end of the pool

clouds are not

necessarily credited

for moments

of darkness
