circling -- holding @ 06:38 am

Ah
but with all that rushing around
i did not get to finish the book before i left the city..
but the book was all about the city..

as the plane was taking off
i was shocked (constantly lately, streaks of blonde through my hair)
i was going so Far away from New York

New York Loves Us!
it takes care of us..
it gives us everything we want
... if we know where to find it
and work hard enough for it.

but away we went
far from new york city
over the dark ocean

tired
wired
i could not sleep
i had to finish the book

and yet
through the reading of the book
i realized that in my rush
what happened to the little buck-skin bag Clyde had given me?
and what happened with that NetFlix?
damn...

no clue
such a rush..

but i kept reading
and through all the drama
the climax that didn't entirely all connect
not all the promised answers got delivered
melt down

interesting to end a story in a melt down
but maybe that's how it went?

still
i couldn't stop thinking about the netflix
and the bag..

when the story was over
i was shocked as well
fulfilling my own beliefs
confused, in light of the conversation we'd had

damn distractions

when it was over
i found the buck-skin bag
no idea how to bring it back to life...
but the netflix?
no idea what happened to that
and will i have to pay for it?
some movie i didn't see
maybe lost in the taxi?
damn...
$24
money just drifts away...

i slept an hour maybe
and before the plane landed
while we circled in holding
i found focus
it's so easy
just takes intention

mind pulls away
just bring it back
feels so good

but damn: i'm tired.
