30/30 Poetry – WXW- Day 4

Prompt for Day 4: sometimes you have to walk away

my future starts when I wake up every morning. Every day I find something creative to do with my life”.

        -Miles Davis

Sometimes You Have to Walk Away

evening sun warmly slants in small high window

rough brown carpet startles my unclad feet

soft-smelling cheeks and rubbed-off hair

under lemon-cotton cover

rising and falling

rising and falling

rising and falling

 
still Michelin-man parcel

encased in billowing padded snow-white

held prisoner by my arms

no window

a cell from which

I must grant my own parole

sometimes you have to walk away
