A PRESENT PRESENSE
(4/25/19)


most
of my worries

my anxieties

my psychic
pain

are primarily
due
to memories

to projections

distracted
out of body
experiences
removing me
from the
here

from the
now

especially
when I'm
feeling
physically
well

free
to wonder
about the
past

the future

but
just a bit
of bodily
pain

some corporeal
discomfort

seems
to circle me
back
to my current
circumstance

my extant
extent

and when
I can take
a good
hard look
at the immediate
moment

I see
again
the miracle
of our
existence
