Editing Suggestions

at the door to the world
Someone should be stationed
to hand us each a sign
as we enter sign that
says Ahead! Many Opportunities
To Practice Letting Go Of
this sweet darkness, for example
of favorite toy soft yellow
blanket with the silky edge
homes friends schools
libraries barstools slate sidewalks funny
men gorgeous men generous
men awful men more homes
more friends particular slants
of light on summer afternoons
asparagus ferns several cats
including this one a couple of dogs
garden herbs nasturtiums words
your children and the whole
generation of your parents before you
jobs money clothespins smells
cooking and the ocean
crystal bowl of seashells and the onyx
elephant from Pakistan who lives
on your desk. Instead of trying to
fit it all on the sign imagine if
Someone just rewrote the sign to say
Open Your Eyes or Pay Attention
Look Around or Enjoy The View or
Hey, Did You See That?
