It came to me this morning, now,
and I studied it full face
as if watching stand-up comedy
awaiting the punch-line.
But silence issued from the lips,
the eyes were stark and staring,
and the pose like one uncaring
of me and you and them.
Like a statue, yes, indeed it was,
yet it followed my perceptions,
bowed down to my core belief,
and played out every thought.
Ah-ha! It’s life; you know it is!
