  1. Do all muddle through life so lethargically? Eyes staring at the ceiling or at the floor? Shuffling from one drab room to another? I liked the play on the mobile phone and the missed sunsets. I suppose we should all have that app, only it should include other wonders as well. Dead at 80. I should live so long! Your obscurity is a challenge. But it reminds me of the film, “About Schmidt,” with Jack Nicholson in the lead role. I suppose there are thousands … dare I say, MILLIONS, out there whose reality is Facebook. Ugh.

    1. Hahaha I somehow felt that you’d be annoyed with this one for some reason. I think it’s just my greatest fear and when I wrote it down, it was a reminder to not let it happen like this, to never settle for the monotony that gets pushed upon us sometimes.


  2. Not annoyed, per se. If you are a crossword puzzle geek like I am, you know that Thursdays the puzzles are more complex and obscure. While this is not a Thursday poem, it’s close. It’s always interesting to read others reactions to your poems, as well.

  3. Have you considered writing list poems? This reminds me of that style of poetry, which is one of my favorite to write. I love that this poem lets me create meanings from each image, but also a bigger picture at the end or let me pair them as I choose.
