NaPoWriMo 3 (clarity)

brush away the cobwebs
clear the dust from
your mind.

see? here i am.

blink the grit from
your eyes and
wake up over
coffee.
look through the window –
sunlit –
can’t see a damned thing.

whisk the net curtain
into place;
replace the coffee
with tea.

(do you see me 
yet?)

-no, no you
don’t.
the light’s not good
enough to throw
any definition.

(let me in?
you’ll be able to
see me better)

pull the heavy curtain
across.
light candles that
shimmer in the air,
smoky haze warping
your vision.

-no, you still
don’t
see.

  1. I love this! Sometimes, no matter how much we’ve tried, that someone won’t be able to see us. Not because that someone refuses to (at times they do) but most often, they’re too busy looking at somebody else.
