not not not thinking


and when I woke what I had left to tomorrow to be said still needed saying but no longer required my voice to say it and when I woke it was if I hadn’t slept at all though I’d fallen asleep before you and woke up after and when I woke baby fingernails were scratching my cheek and leaving tracks and when I woke I expected to hear a snail whispering in my ear and a knight quivering and when I woke I heard “Frost at Midnight” by Samuel Taylor Coleridge through the wall like practically Australia and when I woke a bison mewled a lark at large you know? spirit walking in the pine needles again, huh, a city of children and when I woke let’s go and when I woke let's go where and when I woke wherever and when I woke there was traffic on the shortcuts and when I woke memory is more difficult the more I act out of character “meditation is awareness of thoughts not not thinking”
