Reviewing the situation


What makes you think
tomorrow you will rise
and head off to work
as usual

Your shoes sitting square
side by side
in front of the chair
upon which your shirt
and pants drape folded
and ready
for you to wear

That is no guarantee

The bowls
sitting upon the cabinet shelf
waiting to hold your cereal
are just as happy
left empty and undisturbed

Perhaps your car is weary
and bored
of the daily back and forth
you demand of it

You think only of yourself
and that
as little as possible
your life
as uniform and starched as your clothes
as empty as the bowl
as weary and bored as your car

Why would you want to think that?
