ARE YOU A LITTLE BIT CURIOUS?
NO OF COURSE YOU’RE NOT YOU’RE OCCUPIED
YOU ARE CURIOSITY; YOU’RE LIGHT
MAYBE SOMEHOW MAKE BELIEVE
WE MOVE JUMP STOP TOGETHER
LIFT PULL SCREAM TOGETHER
COOK DINNER DOWNSTAIRS AND ORGANIZE ROW UPON ROW
OF TOOLS.
YOU COME AND YOU SEE AND YOU FEEL GOOD ABOUT IT
WE’RE ALL MORE OR LESS AWARE OF ALL THAT COULD BE GOING ON. CAUTION & CAREFUL ARE TWO TOTALLY DIFFERENT THINGS.
THEN THERE’S THAT INSTANT
THAT TOTALLY FEARLESS MOMENT
WHEN THERE’S ALL OF A SUDDEN
NO EXPLAINING,
AND WE DO.
WE DO WE DO WE LOCK EYES & SPIN AROUND LIKE KIDS
IN A SCHOOL AS THEY TRY SO FORCEFULLY TO BE FREE
AND WE GO ON OUR TOES AND I HEAR YOU BREATHING
MY BODY GOES INWARD SO DOES YOURS BUT THEN WE’RE BACK. PERFORM FOR/WITH/TO EACH OTHER.
WORLD STOPS PAIN STOPS CLOCK STOPS
NOW.
IT’S LIKE PROHIBITION’S BEEN LIFTED
AND NONE OF US WILL WAIT ANY LONGER
TO LOSE OURS MINDS
SO WE LOSE OUR MINDS
AND IT’S MAGICAL AND SOMEHOW WE’RE STILL COGENT &
WE KEEP IT TOGETHER.
MUSCLE-FIBER CORTEX-CELL THROBBING THINKING DANCING QUICK WE DON’T KNOW WHO HEARS US BUT WE DO KNOW
WE WILL NOT BE SILENT WHEN WE PERISH.
IT’S LIKE A SECRET BUT IT’S NOT IT’S LIKE A
FUNERAL BUT IT’S NOT
IT’S CHANGE.
IT’S OBSESSIVE REPETITION; IT’S ACTUAL FLIGHT
THROUGH WINDOWS INTO FLOOR
WHERE WE COHABITATE AND ARTICULATELY MOVE
UNTIL IT’S TIME TO STOP.
WHICH WILL HAPPEN SOON SO
KNOW THAT, THE NEXT TIME
YOU’RE ASKED OR FORCED OR INVITED
TO CHOOSE
