Our world changed so quickly,
there was no time to blink.
accomplished in half breath.

Official to do list
reduced to scribbles in sand.

in a Miles Davis universe

where letters of the

unlikely combinations
of rhythm and reason.

The battle between realism
vs. whatever will continue
because there are times when
“whatever” is all we have.

But it seems our reality
also mirrors “Twilight Zone,”
which reveals the possibility
that the end ain’t always the end

but a new beginning…
