Shared Space

He liked the book,
Everything
I Need To Know,
I Learned In
Kindergarten.

“Simplify, simplify,
simplify”
is also a go.
Get down to
the basics,
look around,
the beautiful earth,
water, sky,
swirling planets,
cosmos,
universe —
all are connected,
though
he wonders
as he wanders
out under that
sky,
why, oh, why
so many seemingly
have
forgotten
what they
were supposed to
learn in kindergarten,
the connection
by and by —
no please,
no thank you,
yes, we all share
common space,
so why don’t
we all take
care of the place
because if we
don’t, we will
lay it to waste?
The bumper
sticker on
the SUV read,
“Butt out!”
He wanted to
shout,
“Butt head,”
but instead
just said,
“Please slow down
in the parking lot;
I live here, too.
Have a nice day,
Namaste to
you.”
