Just one shoulder

…to be still
silent and ready
to bless with fury
what you thought
what you know
what’s new?
horror and terror 
error and mirror
smoke everywhere 
identity dented day
after day by searching for
the elusive other
the you in them
the us in we
the feeling of solidarity
littered lives
splintered sentences
the struggle to make
it whole and new
even the philosopher
of science and magic
can feel cold chill of doom de doom
and yet the mad moon
the number 1 sun and all stars
and earth remain spun
life coming and going 
tragic and comic waltz
orbit of causes pauses to
the work you were doing
what you worked on
before the job sucked time off
swim through the hate and
hollywood revenge flu
into creative love lake mate  
dig deep and spark one
bark if you have to

how to make it all cohere? 
push through
stay high and keep smiling
the world is too big
for just one shoulder
–Steve Fly Acrillic
