kicking through

November 7, 2013

observe the east through the eyes of the west;
observe the west through the eyes of the east.
above all, observe

walk on pavements and under skies
with open nose and curious ears,
kick through dust and grass and snow
and let the air disturb your face

stand back and thrust your arms in deep,
understand what you can
without armour of better knowledge,
and notice that you do not understand
what you do not understand

speak to question, not to direct, and
wipe your perspective spectacles clean
regularly, and as required

return and return,
because we always return
somewhere,
to rest
