my duties, near non-existent, still i neglect them

having no meaning 
is not a 
sad nor depressive 
state. it is 
one of coolness 
on forehead, 
when pressed 
to windowpane. 
outside 
Summer’s thunder-
storm rages. 

mote of dust.
puff from floorboard.
old wooden house,
breathing. 

meaninglessness is 
a hammock 
slung between two 
weeping willows
at pond’s edge.
frogs
burp and bark. 
insects buzz 
a sex-fueled song. 
wind caught
in tall Summer 
grasses, parting, 
brief glimpse 
of old tombstones. 
bodies underneath
green dirt, long 
ago relieved of
their earthly dance.
