Interpolation

listen to this poem
 
Make the distraction your focus—
Your sleepless night,
your subject,

The neighbor’s leaf blower,
your muse,

The weeds in the rock garden,
your lover,

The letter to your mom,
your novel,

A cloud and a skylark,
your Alpha and Omega.

Our conversation,
your sex,

my body,
your poem,

our memories,
your distraction,

your focus,
my present.
