Daily missive for Tuesday the 10th of January.~by Peter Forster



Daily missive for Tuesday the 10th of January.

Wake up…
Sleepwalking is not an option
How did I get here
With no memory
Of the journey.
Is it of consequence
The gaps between then
And now
Are so disproportionate
Forgetting is no excuse
Not attending
Is effortless
When so much is contained
Within dreams
The world is broken
No words are spoken.
How much easier
To remain within
A mindful capsule
Careful of closed truths
And with an eye
For small things
That touch me.
Is that idiosyncratic
Or idiocy
Bigger pictures
Blot out faded light
Specifics are infinitely
Vision is restricted
As palsied schemas
From ill-gotten gains
Pessimistic groans
And easy short-cuts.
If I am somewhere
I ought to be
Perhaps this is
A journey
Yet to finish
In which case
Attendance to its passing
Is surely warranted
And this questioning
Is the price to be paid
For complacency.
