 please tell me...what is it that you are doing with your one wild & precious magic life?


i know, you never intended to be in this world.
but you're in it all the same.
so why not get started immediately.
i mean, belonging to it.
there is so much to admire, to weep over.
and to write music or poems about.
bless the feet that take you to and fro.
bless the eyes and the listening ears.
bless the tongue, the marvel of taste.
bless touching.
you live a hundred years, it's happened.
or not.
i am speaking from the fortunate platform 
of many years,
none of which, i think, i ever wasted.
do you need a prod?
do you need a little darkness to get you going?
let me be urgent as a knife, then,
and remind you of keats,
so single of purpose and thinking, 
for a while,
he had a lifetime.
