1.25.18 Some Hilltop Delusions (Poem, 2013)

The following poem was written on March 1, 2013 and appeared in my personal poetry book “Monsoony” (Sep 12-Mar 13)

standing on a snowy hill

looking over the universe

or Albuquerque, if you will;

and I’m feeling a little damaged

 

but its suddenly okay

because i remember

its simply my life’s path and

tomorrow will be better than today

 

sitting on a grassy hill

being mysteriously smug

and cosmically still;

and I’m feeling a little destructive

 

(come on, say something constructive)

 

but its suddenly okay

because i know

life is but a journey and

tomorrow will be better than today

 

jumping off a jagged hill

looking like a comet across the sky

or like literary fodder overkill;

and I’m feeling a little deranged.
