Storytelling Bones

Here’s me here,

So stupidly relaxed:

Like one of Einstein’s complacent codfish;

Thinking myself at rest –

Copying the wisdom of fools and

The foolishness of the wise:

Enjoying pretty shells,

Seeking smooth stones

Storytelling bones

On the fringes of

Excitement’s oceans.

Sure that the starting line whizzed past me,

That the world is rushing past

So pell-mell fast.
