taking a powder

20 Jun

some days
it feels like walking up hill and
getting nowhere when
all of a sudden
shazam!
a park bench appears
and so that’s where i
fall off the horse and
set up camp for a while,
the starry skies coming on and old memories.

*broken bats baseball discusses
a few more park bench ideas,
for a beer or two

    I like this. It reminds me of Pessoa, but modern.

    and love the shazam. More people should do that. Lots more.

      glad you liked it.
      i guess park benches are hot these days because more and more of them are locked with chains.
      hey, good to hear a non penguin reference like Pessoa. I never heard of him before.

    I once wrote a piece of flash fiction about sitting on a park bench in Montreal.
