‘You are not your thoughts.’
Find the still point,the naked bulb,
the white peonyunfolding
one moreinner ring
while not beingexactly open.
An animal needssomething to watch.
What I sawas a formation
of fighter jetsin the distance
was, instead,a blow-up
of rivetson a panel truck.
Thinking is hard,but thoughts just happen
because of the nearrhymingof sparks.Story Line
