2020-08-25 – Life Expectancy

in a breath, life’s breeze
will hoist me off
my feet,

next it’s the pin that
pops my bubble,

and only my wind tunnel mind
expects life’s lift without the
pains of getting off
flat ground,

rooting hands deeper
in soul garden,


just go ask any sky-trained bird
how bad falling can hurt
the proud

and frightened.

Preachy Old Gorman

Thanks for reading.
