TINY ECSTASIES
(10/19/14)


we shake
our heads
at their adrenaline
fixes

heights

depths

speed

sex

chemical
enhancements
of every kind

we don't
need
to be thrilled

frightened

pleasured

pained

to suddenly
realize
that life
is an amazing
miracle

that we
are so damned
lucky
just to be
here

our
simple satoris
can be sensed
while taking
a walk

listening
to music

reading
a book

picking
up
a leaf

searching
the sky

we are not
less
because we
require less
to feel alive

however
the adventurous
will call us
boring

deficient

they require
sensory overload
just to touch
what we feel
during the prosaic
course
of our days

don't
resent them

pity them

they will
never know
the cosmic
orgasmic joyride
of eating
a peach
