The Reminder

The manic shifts between the beauty of reality as a photograph
I can see it, but I don't
feel it
to putting down The Cinnamon Peeler and to breathe Ondaatje

Sitting dazed on the toilet,
overwhelmed by the natural poetry
of the laminate floor tile
toothbrush and hand towel
the whole world as a painting waiting to be repainted
waiting for you to pick up the brush

Weeping over your canvas
the bathroom sink
So happy this feeling has come back to you
