A Day

A man is floating, limbs akimbo
walking across a strap
taut between two trees, thin as air.

A shy crow,
an iridescent, black coat,
a paradox.

A rusting pot in
an open window,
crunchy weeds.

A branch,
stooping low,
dripping quiet droplets
of acid rain
into a deep puddle below.

Two Mexican men
looking down,
as they pass on the bridge.

A boisterous sneeze
through the gargantuan hall.

Walking through a swarm
of fleas,
one lands on my poem
and refuses to leave.

  I'm not even going to try to pretend like I understand this. I think I read it three or so times, still at a loss here. Its a good thing to make people think about what they've just read, but come on.....


So, this is what my thoughts give me. Some guy is walking a thin tight line in between two trees, a crow foreshadows death. Hmmm..The two mexicans are scared to walk across the bridge hovering over deadly acid rain, one of them sneezes and kills the man concentrating on walking the line. Thats probably wrong, but its all i've got. I didn't know fleas were attracting to rotting bodies. I thought that was maggots and flies. Oh well.

Great piece none the less. Don't let my confusion stunt you, lol. Have an amazing day.

(I believe it should be "sneeze" not plural, though.)
