lonely cashier by the sea

what i think becomes
an orb around me
a customer asked
what my deepest passion
in life was
I stumbled
told her i don’t
art and poetry?
but it’s a certainty in my head
I just like to come off
as unambitious
she said well go do that
there is
something preventing
I’m following
last night i dreamt
of an open field
where I had to remind
myself to breathe in

  1. It’s not easy to go against the grain of society, to break the bonds of consumerism and spend more time on truly fulfilling creative activities. I’m a fan of your concisely expressed ideas. I don’t understand why you don’t use more punctuation though.
