Must

Must do this, must do that,
the mantra at the core of speeding thought.
Everyday panic.
Must do this, must do that,
headlights casting all else in darkness.
Tunnel vision ambition.
Stop!
Pause, awaken, breath…
Take in the whole with all your senses.
The invaluable moment.
This moment…yes, THIS moment, looks like this…
I can’t describe it to you,
that’s for your senses to do.
