Ash Wednesday: Loft
Written By: Ash Catcher
Look out, across the land nothing but the soft buzzing air.
Hard to see on a map, back then anyone recall foursquare.
One house rancher, just propped up another level.
I never expected you of all people to know how to make a pretzel.
But here up on the second story with no ground underneath.
Reminds me of a time back when I was younger, when I had less teeth.
Lofty housing built above a garage.
Separate from the house, just a bit more camouflage.
Best night sleep of my life,
Kitchen outfitted with everything but a bread knife.
The quiet, the lack of sound.
Nothing in the background.
But the uncanny sound of silence.
Something different from all the drugs and violence.
A place of solace, with not much to do.
Wifi spotty, just need a permit to park my coup.
Farmland, barnland, places that look like movie sets.
When faced with your thoughts alone, it's like challenging yourself to chess.
Is it the back to basics that you need, or the lack of distracting things.
I am beyond excited to see what this next Spring brings.
