reflections of you

i figure a mirror,
start treating others
how you are treated
and if they get mad
so what? …
open the windows on morning light,
we find there is none,
and stalkers walking by,
close them fastly sharp,
i see the sidewalks empty
these chipped frames have no subjects,
eat my pancakes in scarfs.
tell ears that i am political
with taking care of our child,
tell her watch and see.
actions sound better than words to me,
but the words that form them… i don’t know.
i figure a mirror, watch me be you.
watch me learn from you.
did you write this lesson, or is it improvised?
do you like how it feels?
do you like how I deal the cards?
no matter, like the mirror
i just stand and reflect, inverted, obscured,
catch you as you go by when
you turn on the lights to glow
and even when you don’t.

End of Work Observation

End of Work Observation,

By Terry Scott Niebeling

 

“When I’m not looking for anything I find everything.”

OTS_

 

***

 

Watched bugs fly; they flashed sparks white under the hot parking-lot lights.

Sitting in the A/C cooled yellowing dim-light dining space.

 

Sippin’ a beer with pork and nettles.

 

Ace in the hole,

No story to tell.

 

No drama foreseen about to unfold.

All is well.

 

Stacked silver on plates to be taken away.

 

Just watching distant wings hit, flutter, flap and sputter, fleeting dust as dark colors crept in.

 

 

 

 

Everyone’s like this and that…  I’m like, man, what the hell?
