true love tales #5

sometimes it is silent
and sometimes it is loud

sometimes we think it
needs attention

sometimes we want

sometimes we give it
and sometimes we take

but really
all it

is to be

(D James)

the mouse runs on the wheel going forward and getting nowhere

must do
must always do

be doing
or be dead

moves the world
no time for anything
other than the doing

the being
is busy

being busy
with all the doing

to the end
gold watch
and a monthly check
then a trip to eternity

never wondering
until it’s too late
where all this busy business
really gets us

(D James)
