recollection

can’t recall
if it was
today or yesterday
as the days run together
in a string
of barely slept awakenings
in which
the thunder booms
as lightning races
from one end
of my brain
to the other
with the manic frequency
of lazy cheetahs
on methamphetamine
laced laments

have you ever
seen the sunrise
as the salty ocean water
takes root in your lungs
and blood vessels
burst in your eyes
so everything
seems colored
by desperation

one has nothing to do
with the other
though both
seemingly have
every single thing to do
with one another
in that standing
on the edge of the cliff
wondering
if one errant step
into nothingness
will bring the answers
sought
