the interstellar tennis match…

the interstellar tennis match

i wasted another afternoon
speaking to the dead, again.
words & words & words,
& more of the same. time
as mind under the unconquerable
sky.

i stopped caring for specifics;
there is a more exculpatory
evidence all the time.
i can live with that, despite
some evidence to the contrary
turning heads as if following an
interstellar tennis match with
extreme equanimity.

whatever is wasted in the strain
of the temporal seeks homeostasis,
same as everything else. peaceful
avenues once held mobs; ask the
de Witt brothers. piss-pot logic
& dime store psychology aside
(if only for a moment) it still
rests easier when it rests.
sacrificial qualities or lust for
blood or slip of the tongue all
seem the same from here.

the interstellar tennis match is
tied.

Dedicated to Bento & Russell, with thankfulness as always. “Caute” indeed.

  1. Not sure about what kind of tennis match you have in mind here, but I’ve been happy with the tennis match – Wimbledon – Pironkova-Williams. Cheers for the winner ..

    Those skies … they do look pretty blue and unconquerable sometimes, but then again… that’s what makes them charming.
