THE SIMPLEST THING IN THE WORLD

The simplest thing in the world,
is not the most straightforward

thing in the world—
flip your trusty
ball cap upside-down

and catch a little sunlight,
instead of blocking it out;

notice the profligate
shuffling of your feet
against

the unstoppable stillness
of the ground;

look up
and out beyond churches
whose pointed rooftops reach,

but don't ever touch
the obdurate clouds—

and try to feel
certain (without yet knowing how
to parse it in a sentence)

that help is not on the way—
help is all around.
