I AM/I DO
I AM THE SPITBALL hurtling through space. My perfectly straight path has been trapped by the gravity of a gigantic, flaming ball of gas which now controls my path by keeping me forever at a safe distance…
I AM THE QUAIL who minutes ago flew a few feet to avoid being eaten. The doves who also avoided capture, flew higher than I. perhaps next time I will reach the branches; perhaps then I will be safe.
I AM THE STARLING among starlings. We rise to the sky and the world takes notice.
I AM LA NIÑA redoing my map. Somewhere I miscalculated.
I AM LA PINTA. Here are my mistakes,
I AM LA SANTA MARIA: . I travel by Burro.
I AM THE DERVISH. I whirl away my errors.
I AM LIFE. I am the errors.
I AM AWARENESS. I am willing to improve.
I AM THE EDITOR. I look for missed “takes”.
I AM THE LEMMING. I follow the LOVE.
I AM THE LEADER. Accept my FORGIVENESS and pass it on.
Dedicated to the Love of my Life*.
(The *Apple of my *Aye.)
