speckled human lights
under big eagle godlamp
more like glowworm
I’m talking about the color of a sky over a city but gads the psychologist
wants me to slow down
close my eyes and listen but not listen
to everything and nothing

he seems to want to stop making rapid rapid
to stop making the chop chop

oh the waters under an august sky
august like majestic
even though it’s actually the rosiest January
there I had to tell you

so now it’s time to take a little break
and define productivity
and then debate creativity versus perfection
never stop with this

I don’t want to break his spirit
nor look out the window down the hill
where comes the man with the hose
to wash down the parking lot
