Pedant

After two days of radio silence,
At 7.40am,
I got a text from my daughter
Saying she loved me too 😛
It was more nourishing than breakfast.

And the love,
Beautiful as it was,
Got an extra boost with the thought
That at least one of my daughters remembers
The difference between to and too.

Numb

Poised
But no thought emerges.
Lost, vacant and numb
I followed my existential axioms
To the vanishing point.
Dots to infinity
……………………………………………………………………………………………………….. 
with the lack of insight.
Tautological circles of crushed chalk protect me.
I go into spin mode and witter about the whether, or not.
Remember some platitude or indiscretion from the job.
Or some trivia or distraction,
Or throb.
Some chemical or fraction,
To take my mind off the possibility of acute myocardial infarction.
