As I Did Yesterday

rolling into the city station
i am sighing while others
doze
while i contemplate the empty
weigh
seeing masks that have stiffen
faces
underneath
a bus to catch
eyes recording if i’m late
and the day unfolds
as did yesterday….
or did it?
or was it held in someone’s
grasp
controlled from a hidden
place
dismissing my time
off hand
demeaning my life,
irrespective
notwithstanding, i tighten up my various
parts
prepare my mask
and engage the day
as i did yesterday!

About pmisteil

Hi, my name is Paul though I write under other names like, Thatcher and Paolo, I love literature, art and architecture their passion and drama....the contradictions. The notion of Truth-who is the person behind the mask? Or does it matter! I like long walks and longer conversations over cappuccinos in a cafe with atmosphere and the rest is a journey!
