now, say it like you mean it: MUNDANE!

April 20, 2012

life:
to place your keys in the wrong pocket
before your hands were full
how would you foresee
which hand, which pocket
would be available.
you might have thought ahead
too late now
you reach across your body
arms with awkward load
hand creeping, inching
pocket tight
fingers walking down
slowly, forcibly at that impossible angle
into a suddenly too deep place
just put the stuff down,
but wait!
almost there.
