Poem: This is a test

this is a test

and only a test

if I do nothing

what happens

if you do nothing

what happens

if I do something

or anything

perhaps one more thing

what happens

if you do nothing still

what happens

if I do everything

all things

reach down to move your feet

or up to puppet your lips

what happens

and if at the end of it all

you still do nothing

what could have possibly happened

your heart and will

are yours to control

mine are mine to protect

for every level of effort

I perform, the outcome remains

no forward motion

no synchronicity

no reciprocity

so I’ve learned to do nothing

like you ….  

flirt with the air

deny responsibility

through inaction

save energy

stay where I am

move forward on my own

momentum with no

expectation or disappointment

after, it was only a test
