Receive

allow this moment
boom this instant
a musical beat
in the background
you are not a theory
but the real deal
don’t block your way in
or out
(these seemingly solid items
are always scattered about)

there is some kind
of connection but
there isn’t any time
to account for anyway
and certainly
no one to appease

so be at ease

can you feel how that
relaxes the shoulders?

set down the firewood
there is water enough
stop being responsible
and begin to believe
in impossible things

bring them closer to insight

let all be lit and soften
we will form from them
luminescent sea waves cresting
over reflections of milky moonlight
we will enjoy our sea otter play
long into the swaying night
