How Things Are Right Now

How Things Are Right Now

Right now:

What difference does it make
the second time you hear it
or the third the fourth the tenth
keep quiet
as you run in and out of stirring things up?

Remembering where I have been:

the archives
were difficult to use
how they were shelved. They were overhead
and over my head.

Finding the way to where I need to go:

First names.
An empty glass. Let me fill it for you.
Together. Always friends. Never have doubted.
