"Taking Thought" #7
When you merge, you know you have to fit
into an empty space, and the mind
must see it there beside you on the road, moving,
until you find yourself in it and it’s gone.
This seems true, even though all the while
the mind is full of thoughts about the day’s work
ahead of you in the rooms where you will try
to teach some people something.
Someone else drops back and helps with the one task
while you, in that other move, slide toward
the thought of all that might help with learning
just because you really can’t help it; can you?
