Extra Baggage -

 

Making concrete

our emotions

we form, label and store

our moments

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,

just

extra

baggage.
