life is fire

whether i am sound asleep

or totally wired

life feels more like going down a river

than driving down a road

with a map.

&

one way or another the river will take me

home,

completely unaware of what is between now

& then.

The main thing about being alive

is,  no one knows.

                           alligators lick the shore

                  near the lawn of the outdoor party

         lightning bugs & cicadas & lanterns

  of all colors other small lights

  scattered magical all around

inhibitions drop like clothes

                         in a dressing room

        & have one last look in the mirror––
