Oasis

Outside, I like the pergola protection
over an over easy plant overhang
to make the middle of the day
stay right where it is
as I write where I am.

It's the time for day to become
a night full of stars
where the awareness 
flies far away 
from the center of mass.

Concern, see the waving leaves
turn from each other
and deny any singular focus,
unless you made a cliché
stand in for true phrase.

And as in a nap,
the seat between the shade and the bright
clears away your muddy roommate
who insists on sharing the couch
too close for anyone's comfort.
