seven days a week... the intervals in between
can shape twilight into scented ambrosia
    and turn noontime to boiled potion of tan,
dusk smears the sky darkening bronze
        while the night, a textured chameleon... 
  the shrill and serenity of minutes
can blaze the air with  time's ecstacy 
or numb the splintered liver of pain's regret. 

is this a week
that pours of subway’s sweat, then glitters
evening with a vault 
of celibate, white stars? coffee and newspaper
expire as the hours    dwindle into pieces
of unknown sighs: a clock
without hands cradling an endless space
bathed in the moist kiss of dawnbreak
floating on a veil graced by 
             life's alchemy, unbidden...
seven days a week: a deep hole lost
in a melee between men and beasts,
defining not the terms and conditions
of human traces that linger or stain
the lines of meridians blending haste with
             there are no answers, 
i just wade like a child becoming a fetus
without all these adult specs rendering
white stars,celibate...
           in seven days a week.

    It often seems as if week after week, we simply exist in that deep hole lost. It is up to us to step aside, and look, breathe in, live outside the a world such as this,, it can be a hard thing to do. A good reminder is your poem! Great introspection!

    I was immersed in another realm, far from my own world, for a week that seemed like eternity.Overwhelming how you can expand boundaries of time with living metaphors!
