“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.”

~Roald Dahl

drowning in books
I draw out
life’s ledger

labeled lazybones out of loving
indulgences, have burgeoned
disabled, domestically speaking
have begun missing sane voices
of “ethereal” departed siblings
tripping advices, one too many

feeling deprived of that sheer joy
of summarily dismissing post ingestion
of their imparted wisdom
being of contrary perverse
disposition, have blazed own paths
to iffy glory and/ or ignominy
in summation
what I hold in palm NOW
is wholly, solely self earned

with shiny happy eyes
I greedily fondle unread
books in virginal jackets

over prepared
for predicted severe winter
I declare.. “am ready”…
meanwhile “ODing” on snatches
of favorite hymns, pop music
I pale out time crooning along..
