Pay Attention

If you are bored you are not paying attention
pay attention to every moment
drive along a country road
turn off the radio
with its stories of bombs and
   cannons killing the innocent and the not so innocent,
   housing foreclosures,
   falling dollars, rising dollars,
   radioactive tsunamis.

Turn it all off and watch the flowers, the trees
   stand witness
   filling the air with air.
the irregular pavement
jostling you in your seat
this way and that
see that bird land on the road
   only to take off again
where am I going?
not there yet
I’m here
