The Story

You tell yourself

You walk around telling

Yourself

It’s your history

The past

The future

You telling yourself

The story dancing around

In your skull

The stuff people said to

You

The movies you

Watched

Television shows

Music from radios

Sounds.

The stories changing

For me

Every few years.

Then me believing in a story

the story moves on

What story of the page is next?

it keeps turning,

i spill hot coffee on it, or soda

or water

the story can be be bland

or bold and spicy

or usually having highs and lows

and flatlands like Kansas

no hills at all

and sometimes you just want

the moment to unfold without

a story

and forget

next.
