This morning and coffee, blind tightly shut.
Home away from home.
I try to embrace reality, in kind. Settle down,
breathe. Enjoy the cool fresh spring air.
A family waits for me at the other end of this L&N.
Thoughts have replaced song.
Worries soothed by experience.
Long stare, looking to nothing.
Thinking, mourning, dreaming.
Thinking about my father, step father, mother.
An upbringing, theirs.
An awesome task, responsibility to a son and wife.
Facts, equations, works.
Draw a solid line under all the fulfillment of life.
Like a prayer. A mandala of me like the last grain
of sand from a monk’s artful creation blown away.
Collected and thrown into today and tomorrows.
There is a new moment out there past closed hotel windows.
I have not seen it yet. This plastic room, nothing here
is real. I have no want to be exposed to foreign light.
Television, Mode of operation, Facebook, Twitter.
All this is for folly! The worried words of so called
friends. Their worry. I know just a drop of his story,
her want. Vanity glaring on pixel glass’ reflection.
An unreachable solidarity. Knowing of pain.
Of no relief or an outlet. Sharing a tremendous burden.
Like nothing we have never experienced.
I fancy that poets of old like us meet.
Dreamers of dreams. Scribes of time and place.
A mirror for some. The melody of life of
dissonance and harmony metaphorically tricking
an orchestra into laying down their instruments
and dancing with the audience.
This morning and coffee after a short rest.
These words are for anyone who has time.
I take time. Like that time, as a child I stole
some gum from the little mom and pop up the street.
I have reasoning and excuses
that afford me that sort of favor!
Mine! All this is ours anyway!
This. Some seem to be praying for an end.
I know how to make it all stop.
Power is a button I know how to push.
Revolt, revolution, revolving.
A love supreme in action and in thought.
A pursuance of Psalms, a wisdom of history.
Holding sympathetic breath screaming.
We do need each other. Duality.
A transcendentalists worst nightmare!
