How It Is Helpful

In the darkening moon,

it is still warm.

Take off your shoes.

Shush. Listen.

Your feet will feel it.

How is it helpful?

I choose desire —

to brood and wish.

I play with pictures and scenery.

But in the moment,

joyfully alone.

Still,

I want it to go the way I want it to go and wish for what is not there.

Shush. Listen.

Your feet will feel it.

They are trying to teach a lesson.

I wish I were companionable,

a lithe form to fit,

and willing to turn two into something less than one.

What can we do?

Keep tuning the aerial.

The words are in the wind.

What a vast task of instruction.

Shush. Listen.

Your feet will feel it.

It is coming for you too.
