“2018 Corpulence Don’t Go Fitting Into1992 Train Seats”

The 6:05 pulls into the concrete corral,

And we all hoof onto the cart.

A survey of the seating situation brings anxiety,

As there’s one seat left.

It sits between a business casual male, sitting cross-legged cold slim,

And a kindly healthy sort,

Much like me.

It’s been a day,

But I can’t see myself squeezing into that space.

Because, physics.

I could eat less and exercise a little and I still wouldn’t get in there.

Why can’t they make bigger seats?

I think I’ll submit a complaint.

“Windermere Plantigos”

“Windermere Plantigos”

Abutting a frenzy of dancing air,

Petals and leaves propel themselves still.

Potted points of oxygen emissions.

Nature dovetails with man made structures.

Breaking left and right,

Aboveish and belowish.

Invisible force,

Much like gravity,

But not as omnipresent.

A delicious chill leaks down my back and puckers my cheeks.

The time of seasonal consistency approaches its end.

Onward to the new death,

And dying things.

That somehow make it their business to appear at a later time.
