Harboring Quiet

Is it healthy to jump start

the nervous system

from a lumbering gait

to a frenzy –

like floating on a hyper sea

with a compass spinning,

lightning flashing its grin

over beasts above and below the depths

I hear Bowie telling me it’s ok

because there’s no doubt

it will end

one way or another;

whether mountain or ocean,

sand infiltrates, soil smothers

and soon the spinning will be

our little dusts mixing with other dusts

and oh, stars and thunder and maybe

whale-shaped clouds, if we’re lucky.
