UNDER THE SAME SUN

In Florida it’s 1:53 PM, he’d be at work:
Give him a call, hear the bafflement in his voice,
Your confusion over his severe outpost.

Eat a bunch of Famous American Style Recipe
Cookies, be a fantastic man: don’t ask
Or reciprocate, stay blessed/lost.

Miss out, do something wrong
In every country: more coffee, more food,
More sex, more money, more writing.

Write in bold all caps, maintain foot + hip
Problems: be content with what you have,
Any desire, always stay just okay
With all possible solutions.

One nods at you, one offers you a snack,
Another apologizes: everyday’s a large
Amount of indiscriminate interactions.

The ones you listened to comedy skits with
On top of a mountain: consider soul
As the longing of the soulless for redemption,
Perhaps for you both.

Make images: get slapped with flowers,
Apologize for spilling their drinks, search out
A warm vibe from the eastern peripheries.

Movement is along the grid, towards where
You hang your hat and go to sleep: all
The embarrassments there and elsewhere.

The Mazury pine does not exist anywhere else
In the world except Poland: magic tricks
Do go wrong on live TV, yet we all
Still seem recently emerged from the soil.

    the fragments of experience and observations in the poem capture the life of a traveler: “everyday’s a large/ Amount of indiscriminate interactions.” yet we all want “more.” (especially more of the “Famous American Style Recipe/ Cookies.” what a wonderful line.
