Untitled poem written the 28th of October, 2013
By Theo Konrad Auer
Restocking the rubber ducky bin:
Doctor Duck, Easter Rabbit Ears Wearin' Duck,
Lifeguard Duck, Pirate Duck and Sailor Duck.
I am watching water move and
I am drinking from the same bottle we shared yesterday:
Pellegrino, The Asian Art Museum and Leftover Pad Thai
will now remind me of you.
Swimming circles instead of laps I
am searching for a Spanish or Chech word
for this feeling and I am coming up short and
I'll freely admit that I stole bits of this graph from Silver Jews
and right now I can't help but think of you:
Your red really brown hair, your eyes –
each of them a different color and
the way you smile so naturally without artifice,
I can't help but think of that as I am
On the train, going to work
I receive your text,
arrived/arriving at just the right time for
work(s) to begin..
