Just Wait, There’s More

Stranded in their houses
tied up in their bodies
handcuffed to minds
that are
criminally busy
fearful upon entry
into daylight’s world
fitfully turning
underneath moons.
The people wonder
about how far they will get
if they wander
into some unknown…
the placated
sleep safely
in houses
built on
a past person’s future dreams.

Pretending is a guarantee
like saying we know
where we are
is where we are meant to be,
only the happy
say such things…

Imagine a bird
that never lands,
a wave that never breaks,
an eye that cannot blink,
a tree that never stops moving
regardless of how
there is a land
where no wind blows.

There are mysteries here yet
we haven’t begun to get.
There are machinations
unopened invitations
to deeper places
and wider spaces
than the living

Just wait,
there’s more.
