Catching Up

Is this what people do?
Pretending the only thing to have happened
are accomplishments
hiding the reality
we’ve become human highlight reels
(Sportscenter’s Top 10!)
taking the mundane and spinning it
attempting to spin straw into gold.
And to think
we’ll complain about a slow news day
thinking:
“The world owes us its best.”

    1. Thank you. Sometimes you miss people as they wander a different path and when you meet again, they just aren’t the person you know. Wether that’s called growth or divergent paths – I don’t know. What I do know is that the sense of sincerity often dissipates, the little things don’t seem to get much air time and the real problems don’t surface because no one wants to add to each other’s stresses or admit they have them in the first place. Anyhow, Thank you, I appreciate your comment!
