A dip into liquid gold reality

April 25, 2013

So many times I forget.
Everything feels like a fight
I’m losing: against the rental market,
against the education system,
against the slow inexorable creep
of decay.
Especially against the mildew and ants.
They’re totally kicking my ass.
But then something wicked will beguile me
into staying out in the liquid gold of evening
even though there’s bath and homework
and laundry to be put away.
The whole world shimmers and sways as the light goes horizontal
and I am never
but never
sorry.
