Ode to absent mindedness

Oh absence,

I long for you

your simplicity

your freedom

your utterly,




a blank slate,

I idealize you

when the monkey mind

is jacked

as if

on amphetamines,

when the pace

won’t slow


in sleep

in sleeplessness

I cannot say

how it is

that I have never

thought of you,

of your good fortune,

like this before

But today

dear absence of mind

you are my hero

the object of my envy,

my longing

for peace.
