Today's Poem in the Ongoing Series about the Fall of 2005

October 20, 2005
The Thursday split pea soup at the cafe in the arcade was different today

more like typical split pea soup
less creamy

The chocolate kisses were particularly addictive
and tasty

The Blue Danube Waltz is good to listen to
while walking down the street
all the pedestrians come into sharp focus
and look choreographed

Beyond that there’s a certain amount of darkness just now
making me feel blind to nuance
which is sad
but I'm trying not to beat myself up about it
