Some Thoughts on a Morning Walk

Now that I've lived in my body
for hundreds of years,
that I know the cycle of my personalities,
that I know the journey from my spine to foot,
and traverse it regularly,
relieved by regularities,
and pestered by the places of pain and imperfection,

Now that I know
unequivocally that
                            and no one loses,
that you, on your morning jog,
and I, walking my head to clarity,
that we, working repetitively
just to be here now,

what is there to do but be grateful 
that the earth too works repetitively
to make our nows
Eden, if we let them be.
