Almost hitting
a crosswalk reader
lost to the world
having just received
a selfie
from the girl leaving him
for someone else
“Dear John”,
she might have written,
“Don’t take this personally”
At that moment
as the car bumper grazed
his life without her,
it all seemed so pointless
to carry on,
“Out of the way!”
the driver yelled,
insensitive to his heart
wanting only
to get on with things
before the light changed

before the light changed…..



Just an American lost in Denmark. The past few weeks being back in the good old USA. It is like Aliens have taken over my mind, changing it from what I knew to what I know. It might be the heat, or it might be the influence of hearing English 24 hours a day, but whatever the cause, it is only temporary while dealing with this time and space.
