The Last Time

The last time he said something,
it sent my heart soaring.
We sat upon a grassy slope.
It wasn’t even important,
what he said. It felt somewhat
like a moment of clarity.
That kind of thing.

I don’t like to be bored out
of my skull. But the precise meaning,
once you seized upon that,
here’s somebody who could do that,
gave you that exact sensation.
Even if there’re ups and downs,
and then he’d bummed me out.


Day 23. How’s your mood? Up or down? I guess half of you would be up and half of you would be down. That’s how the world works. Half the earth in daylight and the other half in darkness. I’m in the part that’s in darkness. Then there would be the ones who would be both up and down. Maybe they’re bipolar or something. I think in a way we’re all bipolar. We harbor the extreme moods as well as the mild, pleasant ones, and depending on the trigger we let the one out. That’s why we need spiritual practice. A center of gravity that is all calm. So when was the last time you were real moody? Because, you guessed it, Robert wants us to write a poem that uses the phrase “Last Blank-Insert Anything Here”. If you have forgotten what happened the last time, tell me your current mood please.
