Default Some of us

in this world need routine to function

Me - for many years I would awake jobless,
homeless, hungry

All of that is more than two decades in my past

And now I get up in a place I've lived
18 years, M - F take wife to her job, return
home to eat breakfast then go off to my job

Some might get bored by this

I submit they don't have the Yin of my

These days (for a year now) the house is
showing unmistakable termite infestation

Holes (fist size) in the outside walls
(I fill them with spray foam - looks like forest mush-
rooms growing treeside)

Yes - wife and I have advised Landlady
She promises to do something
Nothing is getting done

You start to get my drift here?

So - as I sit and scribble on a rainy Wednesday
morn, snorting snot to a mouth spot
that lets me spit it out into a seatside
waste basket (wife had flu Sat, Sun, Mon
and I'm hoping not to share with her)
I am knowing some unease

Some uncertainty about my routine's future

Memory and Imagination

What sort of currency is this to be
trading with in life?

Through the smoke and fog there comes a form ... shape shifting ... could this be the Future?
