destination unknown

walking the street
direction unknown
even with
Google Maps

Eventually,
I find a place
to rest my weary
legs.

Sharks attack surfers.
Birds eat their snacks.
Lizards fuck other
lizards.
I just witnessed
a lizard
threesome,
which made
me
envious.

Feeling inadequate,
I move on
to
the
next street.

the curb
i’m familiar
with that
comfortable spot

leave me
leave me
leave me
leave me
leave me

finally,
breathless
i discover
true beauty
in my last
breath
and
it’s
wonderful

lights
lights
lights
lights

no more,
thankfully.

Recently moved back to the States after living 16 months in Vietnam. I write to remove the thoughts trapped in the cobwebs of my psyche before the spider envelopes me whole.
