have i lost it?

Posted to Poetry

have i lost it?
did it fall between the crack of my car?
did i even ever have it?
waving it between my two fingers-
wanting to light it up.

do you have it?
i always feel you do.
-you have it, and you put it on a fishing line and dangle
it in front of me.
like a carrot.
like a karat.

i looked and looked, and i looked some more,
i pulled over (my mind)
and got out of (my mind)
and then i found it.

i have it.
you can spend so much time looking for something
your body doesnt need in the first place.
