A Subway prayer…
Hidden hearts and open pockets
Zippers choke, so we open
Bag it and the excess spills out
Where is the pouring out?
Coming from? Going to?
Over stimulated, I’m weighted as my spirit floats
Feet shuffle, Harlem blazz, Savoy truffle
Stop missing someone you’ve never seen
I can’t concentrate on anything but finger prints of beauty
I tear up and they smudge
Thumbprints circle the phone, thoughts spill out
Excess falls down. Chin up
Waiting longs till we have faces
I’ll see you when we get there…
You miss a lot of local people on the express
Face the excess and take the scenic route
I’ll be seeing you, and we will have faces
Everyone rushes at rush hour
And no one goes anywhere
Wait here, let go in the moment
Flow with the seasons. Be.
Excess on the express.
