Scattered, shattered


There's a reason for the fatigue
and scattered thoughts like corn flakes
(the ones holding their crunch on my floor)

she says it's in the aligning of the stars
that others are feeling as lost
as my own misguided self

so, in keeping with her theory -
the one she never got around to backing up -
the heavens are pitted against me
having fun at my expense

napping like a narcoleptic one day
wondering where my anchor went the next
the Gods with their voodoo dolls
all giggles at my confusion
answering skyward questions
with fortune cookie wisdom.
