Silver purple orange month

by Barrie Hardwick

It’s May already
How insane is that?

Insane as every tick-tock of the clock
Insane as a dentist appointment
Insane as Death
Insane as a sane person living worry-free
Insane as a duck
Insane as the sky being up
and staying
up
Insane as micro-particles bumping and grinding together
forever
Insane as forever
Insane as hair
Insane as the weight of a black hole
compared
to the insanity
of worrying
about
the weight
of you.

It’s June already
How insane is that?

Barrie Hardwick lives in North Yorkshire with a wolf, an over-opinionated bird (of the feathered variety) and some people.
