    Orphan's Lament

    he was old, he was sick
    a blessing, really, an answered prayer
    better place, no more suffering
    time heals they say
    their tender smiles harden
    betray some uneasy distraction
    when my eyes rest too long on his toolbox
    two years pass, five years, ten
    how long's it been?
    I don't know

    eye exam the doctor asks
    better? or worse?
    here? or here?
    boxes of light in a darkened room
    relentless questions
    this? or this?
    slide one? or slide two?
    I fake a smile
    but I don't know
    I don't know

    at home, boxes inside boxes
    photos slip in slip out
    fingerprints on faces, mirrors
    sailor, musician, painter, friend
    father and mother, father and child
    earlier versions of me (fake smile)
    better? or worse?
    fuzzy? or clear?
    and God help me
    I don't know.

      Better or worse? Clarity or numbness? Action or inaction? Or both? Both, I think. And neither. Depends on the whether. whether or not I feel like responding to the mundane in this moment of profound stillness.

    I think that I'll listen to myself exist for awhile.
