A gum wrapper glinting in the sunlight, under a dusty film that blankets everything
those parking lots, potholed and decrepit,
Cracking that thin sheet of ice with the toe of your shoe,
& where is that shoe now?
Where is your red jacket?
Do you ever remember losing them?
But you’ve had this shirt since you were 17.
Itchy and restless,
as if answers could come from asked questions
it takes more than a conversation…
more than a walk around the block
~Problems that remain persistently insolvable should always be suspected as questions asked in the wrong way.- Alan Watts~
