Seasonal flags flop

in turn with the breezes

by the meandering river

 

I open the blinds

and it’s a safe bet

that they are worth raising

 

For as the heavens fold

I feel the whole impact of the wind

against the big slick that is my hair

 

Am I suited

to live in a full house

or sail on a full boat?

 

I give up being straight-laced

as my skin feels the flush of anxiety

 

I dress like a royal

in skinny jeans and a pair

of white high top sneakers

 

In the midst

of a mid-life crisis

 

I yearn for the muscles of Wayne Gretzky walking like I have rockets in my pocket

 

My options are open ended

as I ride shotgun

on a tilting Kawasaki bike

 

Inclined to bluff

as the muck that surrounds me

drags my body all-in

 

I dig with a spade

to find the diamonds

within this club

where I left my heart

 

I am three of a kind…

or am I four of a kind?

 

Is serenity in the cards?

Do I hold power in my hands?

Will I answer the call of the wild?
