A human is an animal whose mind can wander.

Presence is not strictly enforced
By hunger or fear,
Us bumping into tables,
Forgetting the keys to the car,
And proving theorems while we miss the exit.
want to be in a hopeless-of-all-profit-and-distribution dead-tree mode chapbook anthology?
no objection. with whom will i share the distinction?
so far, myself and carolann, the younger sister who i once brought to dave's house for a party distinguished mostly by the idea-lightbulb and lots of sitting around.
I like this poem, Alan. I think about this a lot, actually. How distracted we are as a species, and especially in this privileged society. My favorite focusing tools are are sex, yoga, and exposure to extreme cold, but sitting meditation would probably do me more good.
