A poem today

November 21, 2010

Drowning in interpretation

riding the wake of giants

trying to see in front of my two left feet

listening for silence

for the calm in the eye of the storm

judged by what floats on the surface

yet just able to reach for a breath

the water laps against my ear drums

over and over again my brain makes waves

I stack sandbag after sandbag

the interpretation is relentless
