Adore and Be Adored!

Sometimes the three of us
look all at once at something else.
Something swells, distracts, elucidates –

it starts out over there, and then it’s over here.
This is how the mind works: flits from lure to lure --
its cure for any notion there is nothing.

How infinite the stuffing in this business!
We never could be bored.
You can’t be bored by Is-ness.

Adore and be adored!

Large Enough for It to Fit

New York City is a nexus and a plexus
of so many interweaving currents that it isn’t

anywhere at all. Except where you are. You’re
where all its currents fall.

New York City needs a home and you are it.
No question that you’re large enough for it to fit.

It’s Time You Fell in Love

Consciousness took
many forms today
including one which
tried to sway –

no –
you into thinking
it was time you fell in love.

“With whom?” you found
yourself replying.
“Just give it room,”
it told you, sighing.

And so you’ve gone on
clearing what you can –
to make space for this
unknown and inexorable man.
