 My proposal was important
(had to be there tomorrow)
lots of kudos hanging off;
reputation, dollar, sweeter promise

and words poured out from fingertips
to keyboard-taps, heart of laptop,
blah, qwerty, blah,
until an old traveler

sat down, took off his hat
as a youth’s rucksack turned and caught
him on a grizzled head. I smiled
‘it’s all about awareness’ I suggested

‘yes, I never saw this train so crowded’
and off we go into hello;
hello my newborn friend,
before goodbye – we try – our best – and fly.

 Far out – nothing -
fancies everything
and (under the covers)
they fight each other
- spirit and form –
and then something is born.
