(4/30) Four

The prompt for day four over at NaPoWriMo: write a poem that is about something abstract which discusses or describes that abstraction in the form of relentlessly concrete nouns. 



Life before you, an afterthought;

blood now bustles through chest
with downtown lunch energy.

Every moment an observation,
every heartbeat, a beginner percussionist;
we slow time down to snail.

We breathe heavy under skies
of coal and silver light;

we drive a fast car
through Santa Ana wind.

We picnic beneath airport flights,
we make morning songs with our skin;

we worship four letters;
the rest of the alphabet becomes arthritic.
