from the universe to our galaxy


I was born of tongues and fire and drums --

   --- So it it took awhile before I learned to listen.

For one thing, it was hard to hear

Over the noise of myself.

Years rolled by with the earth circling a star

That could use a better name; Milton, or Doris

Might be nice choices. Friendly.

And all of this in a solar system

That slides across the galaxy unchecked.

So I learned to lighten up a little. To rest.

From the universe to our galaxy

And from there to my Putah Creek

Right here on Planet Earth.

Ssh, jobe. Be quiet now.

Slow down and listen.

Try and pay attention.
