POEMVEMBER 2018-DAY 12: “Day In Day Out”

“Day In Day Out”

If I paddled upstream,

I would remain in place.

Everlasting lines at the grocery,

Folks fighting tooth and nail over clipped coupons.

The is no clear cut winner in that scenario despite whomever wins.

Facebook comments are often misleading and misinformed.

Ranting and raving is rewarded with a higher blood pressure.

Some salad bars are filthy.

The sneeze guard is filthiest.

That is of course, until you pick up tongs that may or may not have fell on the floor.

Day in day out, disappointment looms large.

I remain impressed by how bad it can get, and how quickly that can happen.

And then, somehow, I remember everything I forgot

“Fading”©️C.P. Hickey 2018


Fading, Fading, Fading,

Fading out of view.

Focus unresolved, exposing unknown truths.

Adjust the close-up lens, frame a point of view.

One chance to catch the shot, before the lighting moves.
