My personal sky beckons
it’s only a thought in a myriad
a notion inside a mirage

the daily things await
speckled in plastic blood
percolating on brain’s horizon
they wait on the sink
in the kitchen
punched in to-do lists
table… desk… call list… laundry room
porch… yard… garage… basement
bills… letters… calls

they do not march
but sit quietly… expanding
gnawing on my mind

I push them aside and go to
my journal and quietly write
in my personal sky
as the chores
and ominously

Yet you've found the magic in these trivial things, too. Bravo.
