Thought of You Today

(for Ashley Savannah Young)

Pictured catching you up 
on my life

What can I say but 
you wouldn’t know me

Is this why I still carry 
a piece of you riding shotgun 
in my heart

To imagine through your 
vicarious eyes  
and fall in love

with myself?

Think about 70s plots

How simplistic they were
The limitations in technology?
Or the limitations in thinking?

"The Boob Tube" exposed as stimulant
Not the sedative after all
Shorter attention span means quicker
Connections which means quicker
Synapses which means quicker
Thinking, our brains percolate,
Cogitate and fizz, paranoia 
Has become our home state

Those Moments

when you think nothing
Is going on?

Your soul can be found there.

In a Nut Shell

In the beginning there was only the experience.
The simple joy of sensation

Suddenly an object
Remarked upon
Imprisoned by observation

Then remarking about the remarks
So far from the point it was entirely hidden
By its own obscurity

The essential joy of being alive

Reduced to this

"She scheduled time in her calendar to be present."

You think

You think change is finite
A flip of a switch
A decision made
On - off

Rather it is the inelegant
Maneuvering of a baby colt
Or first lesson skier
A practice
or rehearsed improvement

I Got It Back Again Today

That little piece of me
you should never give away.
I forgot

I'm here now .....

Life is

being submerged in(to) this fleshy body 

feeling all of these 

sensations ……

and learning to say
