I turned on the sink
when I went to take a shower.
Put a spoon in the microwave
for five seconds at full power.
As a child I had ambition, wide eyes and a fearless vision.
Now sitting in my kitchen as the microwave smokes I’m thinking maybe,
I need a change of pace.
A walk instead of a run, sunglasses instead of sun.
Because somewhere, I forgot that we all get overdone.
