#219 of 365 – “stale bread”

“stale bread”


I am bruised

and dilapidated

an old shack

in the woods


stale bread

a broken toy

in a store

of damaged goods


I want to cover

my purple

and blackened




all the mirrors

and smash

all the watches


but space

won’t fold for me

and time

won’t bend


and the holes

in my fences

and soul

won’t mend

    Love the allusion to “space-time” in stanza 5 and possibly (?) to a black hole in stanza 6. So cool that I had two “space-time” haiku earlier in the week. Great minds?! Yeah, that’s the ticket! On a more sober note, I’m sorry that your situation is still somewhat unsettled and that you aren’t yet back on top of “the world.” Time heals. Nuff said from me! <>
