accelerating into the afternoon
i was surprised
by an invisible barrier
keeping me from my
purpose
nap
food

smack
i woke up on the ground
looking up at the heated texas blue sky
a sizzling sound in my ears
the smell of bar b que
my back on the asphalt of life
roasting
along with the planet

aliens
can’t arrive soon enough
coffee could be stronger
like those memories of my youth
driving hard at the goal
the objective, thesis, big harry ass goal

i’m a bit better now
in the shade
contemplating essential moves
fluids
her accidental exit
a future trajectory
and arc of the day
