I am starting
to understand

this need for
jargon,

how to hold on
to our humanity

we simplify
others’

noting agonal breathing
not drowning

on dry land.
Kindness?

You could argue it
either way,

and what’s the point?
I just noticed you can see

the whole stadium
from the parking lot,

a clear view of green
serene lanes of turf–

that’ll be nice
come summer.

  1. My blog today was inspired by your poem. If you get a chance take a look. I did not write a poem but a lineage of words that can be dumbfounded to some and mistaken by others. Let me know what you think of it, thanks Barry
