Matt Peulen: It Used To Be Life

Spring '07 TOC

It used to be life
was slower
like a log drifting in the current
bubbling along on the waves
dipping into eddies
swashing over the deck
interesting in itself
like a child’s homemade boat
down a creek

It used to be life
was cleaner
no noise pollution from
curb crossing semis
fume spewing engines
flickering neon lights and construction
the wind could be heard
without it getting angry
and men could walk on water
