Somewhere the atom has been split opened.

Somewhere the police chasing the thieve on foot.

Somewhere the leaves are falling.

What’re are you looking at?

These are the thoughts one of which is needed to pick to start.

Like the leftovers from the noon and from the day before

Need to be microwaved

Maybe I should look on something else not these sentenced thoughts.

Words?

Words–

Summer chiaroscuro divorce lust win poem muse war global warming–

These are words, mere words; meanings and their usage depends on me.

What’re you looking from me?

Are you imaging a slump me, giving you words and thoughts

to present your audience.

Then wait for a few minutes,

I need a cup of coffee b’fore I dress you up for your next show.
