Concrete Course

feeling trapped in time
cold concrete courses
absent softness of skin
tender touch
following pathways institutional
day in, day out
self care attempts
remedy for ill-fitting placement
sick of wretched consumption
seeing malnourished soul
prescribed corrective lenses
this defined self is
lacking by the tightness of definition
relational antagonism an
ocean of droplets
refusing to intermingle
I scrawl inauthentic lament
pointing the finger
away from my failure to connect
I desire
to end this isolation but
all desires a cacophony
rise and fall at random
in the overwhelming swells of life

My name is Mike Bragg. I'm a Denver-based cycling enthusiast and a big advocate of mindfulness.
