Neurons on Vacation


The neurons supposed to be
firing in my brain left on vacation
to sit on sunny beaches piled with
sand and littered with towels laid out
in symmetrical lines, like code spelling
out a sequence that should have
been fired last week – instead
I’m left in a swarm of disconnected
misconnections like an airport
without planes on a foggy runway
in a wintry city wishing for summer.

Day Seven of National Poetry Month and NaPoWriMo
