Can't Put the Pen Down…

Transitory Transit Authority


My train of thought
is boarding very slowly today.
The letters on the ticket
spelling out my destination
are smaller and slightly out of focus.
 
When I finally climb on board and take my seat
the train refuses to move forward.
Perhaps there’s something blocking
the tracks ahead – painful
memories, useless trivia, or
dream residue.
 
I could have flown instead but my
plane of existance was booked solid
with bean counters and disgruntled
looky-Loos.
 
Next time I think I’ll just launch a canoe
into my stream of consciousness
and drift away, not caring
where the current takes me.
