i am just about

i am just about
ready to
today. yes, it takes
some nerves,
but mostly
an armload of
two-by-fours and
a bag of three-
inch screws
if i can accurately
determine the location
and dimensions to ensure
straight and true
walls, i may never
have to feel so much
desolation again

        you just watch – days can
        be boxed in,
        with the same
        spirit of shaping
        walls from sand,
        tides and the dripping
        minutes that keep
        chewing at tomorrow’s
        sunburnt edges
