Afloat

Afloat in a sea of

creatures

encapsulated

insulated

separated

from all life

is how it feels.

Once in a while

shooting out a

ray of communication

with another entity

but basically

hunkered down

recovering from the

stress of the week.

Starting work.

Stimulating but

exhausting.

Enjoyable but

taxing.

We have too many

taxes already

inefficiently spent

on many things

we don’t want–

like war.

Put into peace,

my taxes would

be better spent.

I’m still floating–

a loan if need be–

but I haven’t sunk

below the surface yet.
