Walking Meditation

from by The Crenshaw



How far down the rabbit hole
Would you like to go today?
If you could stay in the moment
What would be revealed in a cosmic wave
Could you be freed
By the forgiveness of indifference
On a scale
That brings your little lungs to shuddering?

How far down the rabbit hole?

Bird songs entwined with voices in the distance
Register with those drums I carry, sympathetic
Measured carefully by whiskers without mathematics

These trees don't have a map for how they want to grow
Wanna make the universe laugh? Make plans, firsher
My personality's a monogrammed briefcase with nothing in it
And if a thought rings true, then I know I'm kidding myself
But a true-scale draft will suffocate you in its useless folds
Thoughts are useful lies- useful lies or deadly ghosts.
