GIFT TO COME DOWN

Listen!—the muffled 
morning 

prayer—of 
a little 
sleeping animal

rasping small faraway 
breaths over the commingling

shaker tune 
streaming humbly 
by on the radio 

and the soft buzzing
drawl of

the next room's 
air conditioner—

is starting 
to sound a bit like—

Take care! not 
to appear

too grateful—for all
of these wonderful

things 
that you've got;

lest you run 
the mortal 
risk—of forgetting 

to exercise 
thanks-
giving for 

the much more 
blessed fact—

that you don't always have
to use 

each 
and every 

one of them all—at once!
