table-setting

what is still…..life?

its preparations and reservations and transportations

the selection of tie and diadem
doors that open…..and shut
miles of anticipation
and signs that tell us
walk and which way

cross over…..cross over

hold fast the comfort
of light and revelation,
slowed pulse, soft whispers

this still…..life.
