“Visions 4”

It’s all the same

day after day.
same people, same places
same phrases same hazes.

Déjà vu with adjustments,
fine tuned for momentary lapses
leaping into a lucid reality
but always back to gray vague.

Yet so comforting
the sameness of it all.
Like lunch with family
or and old dog,
we wallow in routine
while struggling escape
seeking security
yet attempting
to break the bond.

Foolish man;
a pathetic paradox
of wish and want
finding neither.
