“Faire Les Vesselles”

February 10, 2019

I was washing the plates 

     In a state of meditation 

Je faisais les vesselles 

     Dans un état de méditation 

 

My hands ache 

Consciously and subconsciously gripping 

     Shake me down 

     And wear 

     And feel cold 

 

The leaves change 

 

But how things and mes affaires seem so small 

Anointed in Vicks Vapor rub 

     At three in the AM 

Pushed off, my work 

Pushed it right off 

All life is re-arranging 

 

Care for me, me 

Staying in on a sunday 

Staying sane on a sunday 

Remember, you have a band-aid 

     In your backpack should you need it 

Remember that 

Remember that Mum is just a phone call away 

Flip through that Atlas 

     Find where you need to be 

     Then forget about that 

Be where you are
