Words swirling around me churning thoughts

*********************that never stop every minute

***************************fitting together the pieces

**************To construct its gigantic mound

*******************************of a jigsaw puzzle

**********************and I can’t help but wonder

********Working diligently with his brothers

**********************************each word one of a million tiny shards

*****Or a telescope used to view a fire ant

****************************Is it like this

***In noise cancellation mode

*************************************in a thousand colors

2nd generation AirPod Pros

*******************************for every creative soul?

**like white noise generated by my

****************************************with no picture to use as a guide

***drowning out my wife‘s question

*****deafening voices

********************************************struggling to pull into focus

*******cracking its 3 telephoto lenses

************************************the details of the most mundane task

*********dropped carelessly on a concrete sidewalk

***********************************in my waking life

*********** like a space grey iPhone 15 max

*********************************(*as I try to get my finger

*******************of my high-efficiency washing machine)

***************************to push the start button
