seemingly I am doing nothing

June 13, 2013 § Leave a comment

on this couch
late afternoon
a bottle of ale perspiring
on the low table
a stack of half finished books
nearly cushion high
and I,

with my hands folded
on my belly,
stare at the line
where wall meets ceiling
working out mathematical
configurations concerning
birds I saw over the park today

black specks on a pale canvas
forming code
in the sky
a sequence that
confounds me still

as those who
completed the tasks
of their day relinquish
to sleep
and nightfall
appears at
windows edge
