clearing my windshield at dawn
coffee for two, fixing things,

or three, I hear you

the gospel
of intuition
assumes a
certainty
that bliss may be found when we
trust our convictions

Fine

I’m doing just fine
I wake up each day; I’m living, breathing

I’m doing just fine

and they are not you

yet our quick reply to who
refers more to what we do
than to who we are
