Two thoughts

“Two thoughts”

Walking home
two thoughts
in quick
succession
spun my
head
around

1. “Nothing I touch lasts” (boo-hoo)

2. “Nothing lasts” (haha!)

Then it started
to rain and
as I climbed
my driveway
the moon
shone and
when I looked
up at it
something on
the power line
was silhouetted
against the
moon and
I saw
it was
a fucking
owl –
totally still
and awesome
as anything –
and
my skin hasn’t
yet landed
back on
my bones
