the experience
you are looking for
is the experience
of not looking for it

all of my discomfort comes
from the feeling
that I need to DO something
this is what
gets me to thinking
(the biggest pain of all)

the core unrest
lives in my heart
where a natural
heart-following
is divided, split up
by an adopted sense
that there is
something better
than surrendering—
something better
somehow forgotten

this itself displaces me
(forgets me)
from the moment

how can you tell
a thought
from a moment?

one of them
has tension in it
and the other one
lasts forever
