in the absence of thought or action
exists a coefficient of friction
from unforced crash landings
inside a badly lit cosmic fit of
comic misunderstanding
why they follow a fool
like lemmings to a pool of misguided
judgement is not beyond me
i, too, kept my head above that water
while staring at the other
before i understood what i had to do
what comes next in the palindrome
of two thousand two?
surely it must connect the dots of
this madness that splattered
across two thousand one
with random serendipity
forgotten puzzle pieces and rising suns
broken hearts, lost hope, collapsed dreams
restored friendships, savory kisses, synchronicity themes
color-by-number with missing crayons
only forces us to play on
the spectrum of what we’re given,
less the things that have not been forgiven
