the anatomy of a long

the anatomy of a long
weekend in winter
is dissected
under the intense
infrared lamp of the
sun, juxtaposed by
the cooling of the earth,
like warm skin
on stainless steel.
when we take apart
the microseconds
with pre-sterilized
forceps, we find
that the symptoms do
in fact correlate
with the disease –
we take our time,
catch ourselves on
walks
, find more energy
in the mornings
to indulge and
dissect our words,
overlook
the extra seconds
.

      hm…interesting analysis. could be that if i had written it on a friday night/saturday morning rather than a monday afternoon, there’d be less melancholy? (smile) thank you!
