Poem (October 2008)

The rope around the flag pole
Lists from side to side
I breath out,
It still feels shallow
But I'm in a different frame anyway
As sight returns in blue tinged technicolor
Resolved to alter my situation
To adjust the conditions
To alter my experience of the situation I've put myself in
Even the traffic seems lighter for this resolution
I know that when my back is turned
The horns and brake lights will return
But it's a beautiful respite
This is my time, my point for meditation
This forecourt my shrine
I'll be back
Fast forward three hours
Cab passenger I'm thinking of
A Scottish Bodhisattva
And how she changed the world today
Soon i might know,
Catch a drop of enlightenment
