The Chance Of Humming

A
man
standing on two logs in a river
might do all right floating with the current
while humming in the
now.

 

Though
if one log is tied to a camel,
who is also heading south along the bank –at the same pace-
all could still be well
with the
world


unless the camel
thinks he forgot something, and
abruptly turns upstream,
then


uh-oh.

 

Most minds
do not live in the present
and can stick to a reasonable plan; most minds abruptly turn
and undermine the

chance

of

humming.
