Dharma

Listen carefully to silence
and feel the pulse of life
through beats and birdsong
and the throb of blood and guts.

That ringing in your ears

is past conversation flowing
straight through; manifesting
wonderfully and soberly:

Settling into your pores
and nothingness.

Listen carefully as you turn
the key to the engine.
And shudder with power
and creaks of up-coming
conversation.
