Responding to CO16 and “Handeye” KR16

Just Over There

These fuzzy-brained days–
I’m a hand-puppet, waiting for direction,
a sense of what to do, which way to go
some sense at all
to my sensibility—magical realism it may be
when the surreal is real
in this inside-out and upside-down world—where is the key
to unlock it?

Somewhere, a butterfly flutters, and the world shudders;
Somewhere a rabbit hops, escaping a predator, or setting off a bomb.
Crow caws, and I open my eyes,
there is light, crystalline bright—
just over there. See?

-Merril D Smith

Ikonttrekmij– (codeMH16)

Goodbye.
Why the questions ?
I have my reasons
Please accept.

You have everything you need.
You will not miss me.
I will leave no gap.
I am not going anywhere.

Withdrawal will not affect.
Hello.
