Karl Parker

AMBULANT

 

 

I pick up my hospital-things and am

happily out the doors, even smiling

 

at police as I go. So nice to be

in bright day again; to be ambulant

 

on shade-spattered sidewalks; even

to whistle, if one could. Even without

 

whistling the following must be true:

the sun’s the center of our lives, or

 

thereabouts. Light-years away,

massive nucleic fire makes

 

what we call days, months, years—our

tiny important life-spasms. However

 

haltingly, I walk past all homes,

through arrangements of hope & fear.
