Progression of Sitting


The phone rings
and I sit

The dog barks
and I sit

I remember deadlines
appointments
past due notices
obligations
declined invitations
and I sit

I feel anger
sadness
fear
joy
apathy
ecstasy
and still I sit

The wind blows
the flower blooms
the rain falls
and I sit

I know nothing
I am nothing
and yet,
I am everything

and I sit.
