New Lightweight Hoodies. Great for laziness, business, or any other -ness.

The Daoist

I think it’s good to be alive,
just floating downstream
on the Escherian canals.
The view tends to be impressive
except when it gets dark
and even then
some responsible person
usually drifts by with a lantern.
Now and then
some people complain
that we’re all just
going in circles,
but then the sun rises and
they get distracted.
When things become dull,
I like to make little drums
out of the wooden logs underneath
so the others have something
to listen to.
Soon my raft
will bump into somebody else’s
and I’m going to ask them
about where they’ve been
and what happened
on the way.
Maybe our time together will be Perfect,
or maybe it’ll be the Worst,
but then it’ll be forgotten.
In the meantime,
I’ll lose my shit
and get excited
and get nostalgic
and fed up and overwhelmed.
And until the ravenous birds arrive
to pollinate the tired earth
with my corpse,
I’ll most likely remain here
riding the tides of love and loss
grasping at the salty air surrounding
and doing My Part to save the world.
