pause

the area of pause

 

you have to have it or the walls will close

in.

you have to give everything up, throw it

away, everything away.

you have to look at what you look at

or think what you think

or do what you do

or

don't do

without considering personal

advantage

without accepting guidance.

 

people are worn away with

striving,

they hide in common

habits.

their concerns are herd

concerns.

 

few have the ability to stare

at an old shoe for

ten minutes

or to think of odd things

like who invented the

doorknob?

 

they become unalive

because they are unable to

pause

undo themselves

unkink

unsee

unlearn

roll clear.

 

listen to their untrue

laughter, then

walk

away.

 

"C. Bukowski"
