Sinless Day

Today, I'll take my time

move my body slowly

focus on each gesture

allow my five senses

to catalogue their moments

so that I won't be confused by

the noise and chaos

so that I won't be overwhelmed

by the unending furor

so that each second is a

wholly conscious choice

so that I don't wander

quite so quickly

into the mire of yesterday's

transgressions and regret.

 

 


ANOTHER MOMENT (WITH YOU)

While sitting

in the kitchen

listening

to boz scaggs

and drinking hot

black coffee

I thought for no reason

of the night you looked

out the window

in your own city

and were amazed

at the clarity of

the black January sky.

"oh god, the stars,"

you said after.

And you were right.
