Extra Baggage -
we form, label and store
into the baggage we carry.
Packing up our troubles
packaging each negative reaction
and binding these to automatic responses
that are like rockets -
ready to soar off
whenever the fuse is lit.
To see it for what it is -
I only wish to become the sort of traveler
who knows when packing present moments
which moments are in fact presents
which perceptions are necessities
and which things are, in fact,
