{June 23, 2013}   Face Time

when the duality staggers me
it’s hard to catch my breath
coincidental overload stretches out for miles
and i swallow it,
choking on the bitter, savoring the sweet
push it down and push on through ’cause the other side’s just around the bend
though to the untrained eye it may appear
we are always on the verge of almost
there’s that little bit of face time to fall back on
in case of emergency
