Ante Meridiem

Above all else, I am sane.
I take my sunlight like a vitamin
Sleep 7 hours a night
Buy organic vegetables and days later discover them rotting in a refrigerator drawer
Make an effort to walk in open air
Meditate
and be punctual
All this to buy me a single daily moment, that crystalline beat
Of clarity, of brightness, the edges of objects crisply delineated, but not sharp enough to wound
Resonating with platonic ideals
As I somnambulate through the thin, yellow light of early morning.
This is not enough, but is something.
Admit it, I’m the steadiest person you know.

    My old Auntie Meridiam. I should spend more time with her. “This is not enough, but it is something.” I’m going to try to keep those words in my head for a while.

      That one time she tried to teach me how to knit – hilarious! 🙂
      I generally think in phrases like that until I have enough coffee. How much is enough coffee? I’ll let you know.
