A Pattern:

It's possible to feel perfection
even when you're scared.

We have a pattern again, new
though nothing seems new about it
and we know it is temporary...
today is another day when
time is elusive - we can't figure
things out again, just like it was yesterday.
But it is also funny; the world is absurd,
hilarious and vivid in sudden flashes
that aren't connected to each other.
Not like we are, the two who must
connect them in some way to what
we need and be
not only meaningful, but beautiful too,

like a bowl of tomatoes.

Yes - that was the initial inspiration - but in a way, it's just the way things are.
