I Broke the Vacuum

In Poetry on March 23, 2013 at 5:14 pm

that damn vacuum

a little robotic circle


naturally autotronic

from corner to corner

of every expanse

without a single push

or encouragement

taking in the world

while desiring nothing

from it

just born this way

I have spent my life

crying from the crib

straining to muffle my

screams with a lotus


and this robot is more

enlightened than me


so, today

I’ll have a hammer

and none of that

you damn completion

in your circle

no more.
