Life is like fifty-seven minutes minus commercial breaks
until someone takes a sledgehammer to crack the glass.

and do you wonder why you feel so lost,
do you want to shatter the spaces in between
the spaces to see new spaces, have you
ever wondered about the looks of people and
what they’re facing,
and is there a place in there for you?
I wonder too.

all gone so quickly and yet not quick at all.
