Silver Lime

When you read in bed alone you are holy.
Don't shoosh a bird away, he is your friend.
Don't walk on the ice with burning feet. Don't
mistake grace for the ache of time passing. Don't cut
off your clothes in the wind. Don't cuss
in front of customers. Don't get the jelly
out of the jar with your tongue. Build responsible
machines. Let the aftertaste of defeat
lull you into a nap, you need one. Don't
become too triumphant in beauty, it will
pass in time. Ride your bike far into the day
and the night. Reach out to the sky from
the roof of your building, it will all be
over soon. On a cold day let the fog of your breath
rise dumbly. Over by the river you'll find
some interesting people. Wave at a stranger
and watch what happens. If you are sleepy
on a train in deepest Brooklyn, sleep.
