A Momentary Loss of Focus

A Momentary Loss of Focus

by Andrew Massey

 

I think I might break

Or at the very least saw the world in two

It is too hard to reach what I want in the banana tree

It is too hard to load a gun

Or build a ship

Too many rusty nails

Too many wind storms

Accompanied by rain and hail

I think I might take up golf

Or watching baseball

I think I might find a day job

Spend my life ironing other people’s suits

Doing someone else’s taxes

Rake someone else’s leaves

Ignoring the things that make me breathe
