Two Days in Paradise - March 25, 2022

what is daily life

but a photo album

mental pictures snapped

and pasted onto the page

of a memory


today’s white dusted peaks

tower behind a road runner

caught in full sprint

and me turning up my collar

into a windblown hustle


this shot perhaps forgettable

but for the subdued look

in my eyes

thinking of an old friend

I saw yesterday


that closeup

of the wet eyes

of his honesty

scalloped by mountains

totally out of focus
