All this time
I appeared to be a spider
scrambling up a wire of desire.

All this time
and I’m still kneeling at the shrine
of the daily grind,
when the situation is infinitely more dire.

All this time
I’ve been wandering around the kitchen
of a dollhouse, where the food is made of wood,
painted up to look good.

All this time
I misunderstood the concept
of a decision
But I will decide because I think I should

All this time
I let my bicycle rust
in the blinding heat and frost
of loss.

All this time
trying to keep away from me--
It’s been a bust.

All this time
I was in a glamorously urbane
cellist’s selfie, accidentally deleted
from her iPhone 12S.

All this time’s
the time it takes
to live and die and come back to life, I guess.

All this time
there were Marigolds growing in the Senator’s lawn,
withered by a poison spray.
And I said it was ok!

But this time I will be sure to look away.
