Incomplete Infinity

Every day resembles a replicated yesterday
An incomplete infinity salutes the night
At times, I uncork the earth’s lid and my head suspends below
I sneak glances all around, and suddenly
Glides in, flightless, a verdant river.
It barrels into the sea. Gasping for breath, it asks me-
What do you want?
With a mouth full of nostalgia, I am sown shut. I can merely think-
If only with my life scored upon my palm like peanut shells,
I could it blow it all away, with one deep breath!
If only.
