turtles all the way down

Payday

Twenty miles over the speed limit
going with the flow
east to the in-laws and weekly bee inspection
Leonard Cohen singing of his journey’s end
versus the young girl flirting with him
who’s just starting out
I glance at a dead deer on the asphalt
who’d escaped the other side
of the concrete barrier
in high delight
for this

Ain’t no warranty
in the promised land of the future
so I’m getting mine now
collecting pay along the way
which is
kiss of wife
rub of cat
sit by lilacs without a hat
play with clouds
soak in sun
speak silent or aloud
– Smith, 6.4.2017
