Light Socket

Hooked on a curb, traffic watching
stubble faced, blue eyes churning the day
summer phase is sinusoidal, coughing fit, sneezing
dopey head from anti-allergens, thoughts wheezing
sugar breezing, iced tea in the sun
main street, traffic jam, lemmings on the crosswalk
fit craze, God praise, prosperity gospel.

In all this world of bits and pieces,
actions and reactions; physical laws
and their spiritual counterparts —
where is the alleyway between grace, mercy
and sticking that fork in the light socket again.
