PASSING THROUGH
(6/26/15)


we find
comfort
in the routine

even though
some
may only sense
daily drudgery

we enjoy
the fact
that while our bodies
perform
our stated tasks
that our brains
may recede
from the proceedings

we drift

we dream

we speculate

moving
a box
from shelf
to loading dock
for the hundredth time
opens imaginary
vistas
in which our minds
may wander

our repeated
physical requirements
are almost religious
rites

freeing
our souls
from our worldly
woes

allowing us
a metaphysical respite
from our planetary
responsibilities

transport
complete
we return
to our work
stations

where
we can afford
a few knowing
smiles
