Abide

Abide in stillness they say,
But how can I abide
When things change everyday.

Stillness is what encompasses
Everything
Makes all of this, the changes, possible.

I didn’t clock in
Because I never clocked out.
Seagulls screech over the
Languid frozen city streets
Three quarter moon
Keeps watch overhead.

Right before you fall asleep at night
Wake up,
That’s one way to experience the eternal.
