Megan Taylor Boring

“Boring” is a deceptive word, I think.

If it’s dismissed as boring because it’s repetitive,

because it’s rhythmic,

perhaps we should also do away with much poetry

and music.


I’m very skeptical of your “boring,”

and firmly prescribe:


10 sunsets

100 moonrises

1000 seasonal clockwork shifts, and

1 steady beat for your

unenthused heart,


and I wager you will find the mundane contains

more beauty in its

steady glory than

a lick of gone-away shooting star
