The in between

Some days the gravity is too strong
so I summoned the Eternal by looking at a picture of a bird in flight because a real bird wasn’t in my living room
and then afraid I was about to escape my mind I made hard-boiled eggs and ate one while it was still warm and soft and the scent of bird was there which made me sad that I was eating a bird
so I put that out of my mind and sat down with a hard-bound book and let the weight of it sit in my palms and brushed the cover with my thumbs to feel the hardness and when I opened the book and began to read 
the pages released my mind and it was gone after all
Some days the gravity isn’t strong enough


  1. I love this ...

  2. You've captured how inescapable things can seem sometime -- not easy!
