Life As A Nostril Hair





















Is life simply
a nostril hair
in a nasal
cavity of the
Universe?

Occasionally
it irritates,
perpetuates
a bout of
creative
sneezing.

Or where
fingers
of fate
excavate
in pensive
solemnity

a solitary
hair is torn
free, cast upon
the eternal
keyboard –

and life
abruptly
ends...
