traveling in mind

when i was gone
and away from

when i couldn't feel
hands or legs

or hope

i lie in wait
in a tomb of

and looked for ways to escape

i found people
who shared their

with camera in face
or microphone to

calmly recounting
an ordinary day

in a selfie kind of world

you may think
these people
are conceited

a studio of one
inflicting themselves
on the universe

but i remember
the days of pause

when the sun outside
was calling

but i couldn't answer

those days were shortened
by images of new york,
florida, california

and other places i will never know

travelling in mind
waiting for body
to follow

hobbling behind
but every growing

thank you for taking me on the ride
