Splinters

Photograph to illustrate poem, 'Splinters'

Splinters

 

I would do something today

Like explode a myth

Or put air around a tired thought

And smile from ear to ear

In a public space

 

Oh yes, I would

And be generally, emphatically, me

This denizen, this soul

A growing remembrance

Of a life more or less explored

 

I would

And be less confused

More playful

More generous

Just once

 

Because

This blank page is like a day

Full of atoms that may break

Ignite or fall away

Knock on wood.
