Poem: Zeitgeist Jaunt 

A poet walks into a room

with a camera, like, to write it down


To capture this thing which says to folks

this is the moment which evokes


Everything about you, every thing

about all of us, listening


All about you, and her and me,

the wind, the stars, the sun and sea


That thing, the thing, the very one thing

makes meaning – makes the stars go shimmering


We walk into rooms remembering

to find it, and sing


And we sing and sing and sing and sing

and sing and sing and sing and sing
