Kingdom of Dust

My_Waking_Hour_by_the_surreal_arts

Very rarely do I exceed the momentum

Of my meticulous morning routine

Noon finds me gluttonous and unwieldy

Night haggard and indistinct

So uncompromising the clock

For she spares not a single second.

Who shall serve my successor

When my kingdom of dust

Has found it reasonable to pass?

Will there even exist a niche to fill?

Or have I been too stingy to imprint?

  1. Good question. Maybe, given what restraint it takes to hold on, it’s better not to know who–not if–who sees and uses our pattern.

  2. I can so relate to this, I start off pretty energetic in the morning, by lunchtime its fading and by evening it’s ‘who cares?’ LOL, great poem!! 🙂 🙂

  3. solid piece…love the tone of this…and it sings as well…the opening line has hook…and the clock not sparing a second in contrast to you…its cool

  4. There’s a very ethereal feel to this that I find sort of soothing. Great write, as always!
