City life is a smattering of hooks –
cars honking, street lights blinking,
the crowds of cars that form
a parking lot of I-5, dogs running
in the streets, sheets of rain
beating down whatever there is
to be beaten down.
Questions without answers,
unsettling to a world of order
Coffee and stress flow
from my fingertips –
not knowing where things end
and begin or if they do at all.
My cats sleeps in solitude,
my only respite for the day.
