The World of Sensations

I’ve been reborn into
The World of Sensations
Baby pink sweater
Child laughing
Brown soda pop dancing on the tongue

I find it hard to believe
How much there is to feel
~to attune to~
Have you noticed the camera angles on The Office?
One can say a lot just by zooming in

I think I’m finally able to zoom in on life
The mundane is extraordinary
The shower, makeup, hair extravaganza is pleasurable
The way I check my body in the mirror each day
for impurities and fat is saddening
But I had hardly noticed that on
AUTOPILOT

Where do we go when we exit the present moment?
They took my autonomy too many times, so
disappearing into random brain synapses and
the whims of old memories scares me the most
More than drowning
Okay, maybe not more than drowning
but it’s comparable

I’ve been reborn into
The World of Sensations
My amygdala is losing its power
so I threw out the oatmeal
that spilled in the pockets of my winter coat

For the record, it wasn’t quirky when I forgot
everything
It was really sad for me
But I’m glad we could all laugh about it at the time
I’ve always wanted to be an entertainer
