looking for the Real

Posted to Action Poetry




if i walk faster
will i find the real
if i walk slower?

if i'm sick will it be more Real?
if i'm very well?

if i sing the real
as i feel it?
if i'm silent will the
real appear to me?

the branches break
they lie there real
the windfallen leaves
fly by real

if i walk slower
will the real stand up
if i run til the light
flies from my eyes
will i know the real?

tell me whales
dolphins if i make
it through this human
thought, will the
real wail to me?
