This experience is here now.


It’s here, and it’s here now.

Have I feared it?

I have.

I wade now in the thick of it.

It weighs heavy on the thighs.

The torso strains for balance

But leans and continues forward.

The head is bowed, but only for a moment,

Then looks up.

All is bearable it seems, after all,

And more.

For what was false in the posture of the


Has become integrity in the motion of the

With experience

And opens a future that would feel everywhere

Without alarm.
