Straight and Narrow

Face the day lean
stretched out
long in the heart and arms
let the day spill over you like a spout
get out ahead of the curled and the slow
know the Way is straight and narrow
keep below the false drama and sad songs
be lean and long (what some call mean)
for stealing all the lights
and all the beams
all the heat and all the dreams
of the sun
that great warm embrace
across the sky
behind clouds or in front
of the race we run
coming home to our lover
our family and the One



A day is not done, until it's filled with words.
