Nothing But the Whistle and the Steam ~ Philip Brent Harris
I’ll start out, just string words together,
to see what might come out.
Out of my mouth, out of my mind, out of time,
out at home plate on a controversial call.
Don’t stall, get busy. In a tizzy.
Write something, anything at all dig deep and
don’t stop digging until you find something
you know is there, in you, is you, if you will only
pay attention to your spirit, the being that is you
long after this meat sac has perished and returned
to earth or ash or fire, cast upon water, blown by the air.
Whose breath am I breathing now? Could be anyone’s
I have heard, anyone who has ever lived on the planet.
Do you shy away, quake and quiver, wake and shiver,
but do you deliver, take the step, jump?
Quantum leaps over one atom of depth,
one dimension, layered but out of line,
and oh the things we discover, can do.
If we should or not, time will tell.
