on the Osaka loop line

Standard

cities were never really my thing
but there is something here that
calls – maybe not to me but
maybe not to all of me maybe not
as loudly as it thinks but I
do hear my name ringing
in the jingle of traffic lights
in the chirping of train platforms
and it draws me closer, line after
line to a feeling no longer
just a sketch not just a draft
and no matter how much I laugh it away
it’s there it calls it carries me
for a while – just a little longer as
the light dims it carries more
than just my name, and eyelids
and limbs feel heavier and slower
than they have in a long time and
I let the city carry
the soft ringing of my name
slowly fading into town
fading from shi to cho
from here to home and I’m
back I’m back I’m back

NaPoWriMo 2015 Day 21 – Yesterday

Standard

it did not happen
I tell myself.

I know this is not true
as I got up
I had breakfast
I took a bus
I had a talk
I took a lift
I walked
I walked
I changed
I walked
I read
I watched
I slept

but

I know this is true
as I watch
as I change
as I walk
as I sleep
and I walk
and I walk
and I read of
and I talk of
how I break
how I fast
how I get
uplifted
I take what
I have that
I take

I tell myself
it did not happen
