menu item

harder to hear
or distracted more
by the background and frequencies
i never paid much attention

and i lost my distance
vision in grade four –
it was the perfect yet unaccepted
excuse to the chalkboard of the annoyed mrs. hoyt
for my serial inattention

now it is close –
holding the text askance
arms length, puzzled
embarrassing my teen as the room looks over –
my cellphone flashlight is robust

so i will just ask
what do i usually get
and get that –
because ease and comfort
are becoming
my new amuse bouche
