Life is like a Line

Life is like a line.
It is a single line,
endless from beginning to start.
You can only see
as far as your horizon takes you,
and that is why the line is endless.
That line remains,
and only you make it move.
You can make it move
every time you make a decision.
Every time you deviate
from what makes you still,
it moves…
in beautiful vibrations of life.

Voices – Dog Park

There were times at the house
all of us, Sarah, Rufus, Milo,
and it would just be so playful
in the back yard.
Hey – stop it. Stop it.
They just love those plants back there.
We could hear them there,
digging holes beneath the tree.
She doesn’t really like the tennis ball anymore.
She’s a real cutey. Come on, Honey.
Come on, time to go home. Come!
Stay. Sit, sit, stay.
It was such a great time hanging out.
Nope! Sit, stay. Good dog.
We’ll see you guys next time,
I’ll tell you about the time she found a truffle.

The Shakes

And I felt my legs shake again, and I felt my whole body shake, stricken electric and stubbornly violent.

Is it what Parkinson’s feels like? Is it what people having strokes, or heart attacks, or panic attacks? Is this a panic attack? A Hallucinogenic nightmare?

I can put the pressure on one area if I chose, with my mind, not my body, on let the shakes shudder there, within, rocking my body like a earthquake.

It doesn’t feel great; it feels like too much of something great. I’m cold… and these blankets do nothing.
