I’m used to pale amber rays tinting my morning Today they were a bold tangerine staining the world Some would squint at the blazing beams shining down Or lament the light leaving shimmering in the rear view But I soaked in those brief brilliant rays as they pushed me forward
my electricity is always buzzing at a low hum an undercurrent bouncing between my temporal lobes barely perceptible until inspiration flares high voltage crackling jumping down my spine through my finger tips
taking refuge in my octagon haven birds chirp to a faint radio a breeze brushes my skin the heat flushes my cheeks a passing semi rumbles by, vibrating my chair a haze settles over me
