being a deadbeat alcoholic
the nights got longer
and the world darker
and much smaller.
After I tried
the dogs, the ducks
envious of their glass-eyed
I began to meditate
and things did quiet down,
I look more kindly
on the dogs, the ducks
now, not that they care
of my opinion.
They’re safe, I suppose
on that Other Shore
while I thrash
and sometimes drift
against and sometimes with
the current, studying
much too seriously
the shadows in the shallows.
This is beautiful. I can relate. Ducks and dogs are not the only ones with glass-eyed peace. I have been envious of my fellow human’s ignorant bliss.
Well done! Glad meditation has helped.
