Hot Stuff

 Hot Stuff

Whenever my
ego fluffs up
and
gets in the way
of 
humility,

i remember me

how little i know

of 
auto mechanics,
pie crust,
algebra,

and especially
the unfathomable riddle called
 
women.

Then things even out
real fast.

Wonderments and Such

Wonderments and Such

Children should discover
the tales of Robin Hood
and
Hansel and Gretel
and
Snow White

and many others of course,
but also,

they need to visit beaches
and get down on their knees to play

in the sand.

For it is there they will
begin to imagine

how many uncountable grains of sand
there must be clinging around the edges of
the world.

And thus, when they turn their
gaze to the night sky

they will also
wonder
how many stars
there must be illuminating all corners of the
Universe.

And so too,
these story tellings,
these imaginings,
these wonderments,

will help them look
inward
and examine themselves

with a much greater
sense of humility.
