                                                   OK, quiet now
                                                   for the register

my poems are returns to the present                     
my meditations should be returns to the present                     
I need frequently to return to the present                     
so much of my life has been absent from the present                     
any power or virtue I have is found and exercised in the present                     
when sucked up and whirling by anger betrayal resentment                     
I should return to the present                     

                                          let it all go BY
                                          being present
                                          notice my feet
                                          visually notice
                                          my agitation
                                          and stay there
                                          just stop just
                                          stop

                                          there            here
                                          refresh yourself
                                          frequently return
                                          frequently to any
                                          thing recoup my
                                          power recoup
                                          frequently my
                                          power the colour
                                          the texture the
                                          close clean
                                          distinct new
                                          glasses

especially at school where – so much – I do not breathe in the present                     

                                          renew myself
                                          re-be myself
                                          re-see myself
                                          re-find myself
                                          refine myself
                                          enjoy myself
                                          be myself
