I Notice That

The gum in my mouth has been chewed too long,

It slowly dissolves into little pieces that I accidentally swallow.

 

Ego is over-involved in most of my interactions,

Expectation hovers around everything and invades my patience.

 

Pets do not like sudden movements or sounds,

Or being accidentally stepped on.

 

People do not like sudden movements or  sounds,

Or being accidentally stepped on.

 

Bodies are often involuntary and far from glamorous

Their systems ensure that group meditation is never silent.

 

People walk differently in the rain

They lower their heads to avoid the drops, with or without an umbrella.

 

Our lives revolve around the next possibility of comfort

From gross, from anxiety, from surprise, from mortality, from weather.
