In that other world (Day 450)

Opening this day
unwrapping it  so
green and soft and 
newly breathing
distractions away
in that other world
where hurry and
wanting took root
invasive  flourishing
like children did 
before the world took 
on a blue glare  floating 
on the surface  opening 
to the fire  the swish 
the bark and bite
and horror and grind 
of the day and the subtle 
way it lingers on your 
lips  a gentle touch 
of forgetfulness  let it 
always be like this
