Horses Where the Answers Should Have Been

from Sayonara Marijuana Mon Amour

I must not want to be fully enlightened,
since I do not devote myself entirely to it.
I like distraction. Whenever I’m distracted,
a new room appears for my perusal,
or an ocean, or a neighborhood lit
by childhood’s untrustworthy flashlights,
half dreamed-up, half memory.
Or lit by the alpenglow or northern lights,
under the constellation Not Here Not Now,
where I have wasted most of my life.
