If That’s What It Takes, Have Your Coffee Every Morning

it’s the simple things
that keep us going.
you can move
a thousand miles away
but it’s still
the light of this day’s sun
angling through your window
or the shrill of an alarm
it’s the full bladders
and the headaches
it’s the warm showers and
the shampoo in your hair
it’s the sound of a timecard –
clocking in, clocking out –
and the signal on the dash
blinking MORE FUEL.
we are powered by
dreams and small desires but
we move by simpler
means.
like it or not, you’ve come this far
into forever by way of single
steps.
the sun does its
usual thing as i contemplate
the evidence and i
think i might

go for a walk.
