Douglas Nordfors – THE LIFE OF THE MIND

THE LIFE OF THE MIND

 

I am walking along thinking
that every waiter and clothesline
and fashion model and school bus
and clown and milk carton and cop
and Laundromat I’ve ever seen
were created to inspire me
to love them, when, out of the blue,

everyone and everything
leaves me cold, when, out of the blue,
I am walking along thinking
that thinking is hopeless. And then
I have the sensation I am
home, breathless, wringing a downpour
out of my clothes. And then I realize

that nothing has actually happened.
I am walking along thinking
that love never dies.
