Today

Why not fumble over being
Shivering in our marrow
Before we’re dead and gone
Truly feel the absence
Of a grave exhilarating
In the beauty of life
Entering a new kind of spectrum
Autumn fortunes
Flamboyant ignitions
Patiently missing
Or not missing the past
Living now in the bad news
With the exception of lifting
The world up
An encouragement is
Like a comforter
A warm blanket
Wrapped up with a cool breeze
Drifting across the face
Almost like floating
In outer space
Or at least I think so
Only astronauts know
What role do we
Cast ourselves in?
How far can we be
From reality
Dog whistles
And cotton candy
One day I plan to be
A little more klutzy
A little less organized
The ultimate carefree
Finally loving
Every part of the
Less sympathetically
Monster hiding under our beds
Funny story is
The dark is rather comforting
Even though I’ve always been
Drawn to the light
The fastest lion in the jungle
Jumps into every heart
Why wait for sunlight?
How do we get wherever
We want to go anyway?
Looking back I never knew
I’d be here
