Day 202 – Slowly in the Summer

Slowly in the summer
the days pass, uneventful
I’m so uncomfortable
with the pictures they paint
the exact same skies
roll overhead that I’ve always seen
through a windshield commute
the exact same hours
I used to cut up in chunks
like watermelon
and eat in sequence–
the time was always there
midnight just a marker
noonday sun arbitrarily
signaling lunch–
I can eat now
whenever I please
but I can’t find meaning
unless I invent it
