It’s not the size that matters, it is how you use it

with 3 comments

It’s not the size of your brain that matters it is how you use it
do you ever think about magic
or math
or the place where they converge and condense into something solid
like the rain drop on my finger, condensed out of thin air
hydrogen oxygen hydrogen, air, water bonded just so

it’s not the size of your wallet that matters it is how you use it
like Andrew Carnegie
that pinkerton-hiring, union-busting, steel-baron, capitalist
gave money to the arts and music, gave us the “Hall”
or Peter Kropotkin
the anarchist prince who reminded us
from his seat of power (freely held)
“anarchy does not mean no rules, it means no rulers”

It’s not the size of your time that matters but how you use it
all day shut in watching the city drive through puddles
wondering, writing
engaging in projects freely
meditating on
the ace of cups
active female power, root of the power of water
little bits of chemical attraction

  1. I really enjoyed this poem, especially that wonderful second stanza.

    “that pinkerton-hiring, union-busting, steel-baron, capitalist” – delicious!
