Manageable Life

Manageable life
Opens few windows
With some locked doors.
It takes more than air to breathe.
Survival and manifestation
And maybe one more abstract poem
Is needed for this passing hour.
Nests have always stood against fall.
The height is only a beautiful and thrilling fear.
It is like approaching the tall and leafy moon,
But upside down.
A tipsy waitress with a daily serving job is
No good to walk up to the customer.
How much will he leave as a tip to her?
Ever wonder on how much we count on life
Only to watch its wheels run?
We meet on the last day of reunion
And proclaim recollections.
Still a nice way to trigger a memory.
Back in the home the engulfing fire of
Habitual loneliness kick-starts
The artistic hero of colors and words.
Is it better to be sure shot passionately alone
Than to share the wine of loneliness?
Or how sure are we to find eternity in a
Grain of sand?
